Faith in the future: How faith-based organizations are tackling the hunger crisis
By Devex and World Food Program USA
The world is facing an unprecedented hunger crisis. Many food systems are on the brink of collapse due to a combination of conflict, climate change, and the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Faith-based organizations and philanthropies are leveraging their close ties with communities to not only tackle these ongoing crises, but also to build the local-level resilience needed to withstand future shocks. The discussion will include: how tried and tested initiatives are tackling hunger at community levels; why faith-based organizations need more investment to scale up anti-hunger initiatives; and best practices from WFP USA and partners in building local resilience.
