10th Anniversary of the World Food Program

:

The World Food Program was established in 1961 by the XVI General Assembly Resolution 1714 as an experiment to be undertaken jointly by the United Nations and the Food and Agriculture Organization. The resolution called upon the administration of the program to:

  1. Establish adequate and orderly procedures on a world basis for meeting emergency food needs and emergencies inherent in chronic malnutrition (this could include the establishment of food reserves);
  2. Assisting in pre-school and school feeding; and
  3. Implementing pilot projects, with the multilateral use of food as an aid to economic and social development, particularly when related to labour-intensive projects and rural welfare;
Today it aims to:
  • Save lives in refugee crises and other emergencies
  • Improve nutrition and quality of life of world's most vulnerable people at critical times in their lives
  • Enable development by
    1. helping people build assets that benefit them directly;
    2. promoting the self-reliance of poor people and communities
