The 2020 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to World Food Programme (WFP) "for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict." As the world’s largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security, the WFP is the United Nation’s program focused on eradicating acute hunger and food insecurity. Dr. Freedman will discuss the WFP as well as food insecurity in our local community.
