The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.  The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes.  Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

Haiti ranks 170 out of 189 countries on the 2020 Human Development Index. The country has one of the highest levels of chronic food insecurity in the world with more than half of its total population chronically food insecure and 22 percent of children chronically malnourished. Underlying drivers of this situation include extreme poverty and frequent natural disasters.

The latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) results in October 2022 with projections until June 2023 show that almost half the population in Haiti, or 4.7 million people, are food insecure (IPC3+). Notably, close to 1.8 million are now in Emergency phase or IPC 4.

An unprecedented 19,000 people in the urban neighbourhood of Cité Soleil, in Port-au-Prince, are facing Catastrophic hunger or IPC 5 and need urgent humanitarian support.

WFP Haiti has an important School Meal programme across the country and had a recent scale-up. For the 2022-2023 school year, almost 1,700 schools and 360,000 children will benefit of this programme.

WFP’s priority is to support the Haitian Government in developing sustainable solutions to hunger and malnutrition to achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 “Zero Hunger.”
