To achieve these goals, Friends of WFP engages in advocacy, outreach, and fundraisingactivities. With generous support from schools, ethnic groups, religious organizations, businesses, and individuals, Friends of WFP has helped channel millions of dollars to support WFP operations.
In collaboration with other groups, Friends of WFP is also active in building political support for US food aid programs. Friends of WFP works to increase awareness of international hunger through media outreach and special events, including an annual award ceremony honoring leaders who work to end hunger.
Friends of WFP was established in 1995 and is based in Washington, DC.
