Did you know that up to 828 million people still go to bed hungry each night? That’s more than one in ten people globally.
Acute food insecurity has reached unprecedented highs, affecting a record 345 million people — up from 135 million in 2019. Conflict, climate change, and the after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have worsened the already deteriorating situation.

These rising costs are also affecting WFP’s work . . .
