Purpose : Food and Nutrition
Aims/Objectives/Mission : WFP is the food aid arm of the United Nations system. It improves the lives of the poorest people – people who, either permanently or during crisis periods, are unable to produce enough food or do not have the resources to otherwise obtain the food that they and their households require for active and healthy lives. The core policies and strategies that govern WFP activities are to provide food aid: to save lives in refugee and other emergency situations; to improve the nutrition and quality of life of the most vulnerable people at critical times in their lives; and to help build assets and promote the self-reliance of poor people and communities, particularly through labour-intensive works programmes.
