The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) Innovation accelerator sources, supports and scales bold new solutions to disrupt global hunger and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
World Food Program has launched the WFP Call for Applications in search of game-changing ideas to build stronger, more sustainable food systems, addressing hunger at the root and galvanizing international cooperation on food security.
The fact that 811 million people still go to bed hungry each night suggests that food systems – the path that food travels from field to our plates – are not meeting the needs of all people. We have seen that some food systems can easily be disrupted by climate shocks, COVID-19, and violent conflict. Even in stable environments, people have limited access to nutritious food because of geographic isolation, socioeconomic inequalities, or weak commercial markets.
- Startups and companies and WFP employees can apply to the program.
- Apply to receive up to $100,000 in equity-free funding, mentorship, and access to the world’s largest humanitarian organization.
