The World Food Programme (WFP) is the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. Each year, on average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 82 countries. The WFP helps villages and communities lift themselves out of poverty by providing food and resources to create self-sustainment in the most impoverished corners of the world. They are also the largest provider of school meals globally, helping to get children to school and keep them there.

As a partner to the WFP since 2007, KFC has helped to raise more than US$110 million for WFP’s greatest needs and made a difference for more than 10 million people in 60 countries.
