​WFP is the food aid arm of the United Nations system. Food aid is one of the many instruments that can help to promote food security, which is defined as access of all people at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life. The policies governing the use of World Food Programme food aid must be oriented towards the objective of eradicating hunger and poverty. The ultimate objective of food aid should be the elimination of the need for food aid. 

​One thing never changes - our unwavering commitment to refugees. No executive order can change that commitment. No executive order can change that we are an open, welcoming and generous people.
