The World Food Program and the city of Rome, Italy, have partnered to support global efforts to fight malnutrition and hunger. The partnership commits WFP and Rome, where the headquarters of most U.N. food and agriculture-related agencies are located, to raising the global awareness of hunger issues worldwide.
In particular, the two parties will co-sponsor international events that support the global operation against hunger. These events include activities such as the distribution of hunger education packs to schoolchildren and use of Rome’s public transport system to advertise WFP’s work and information on hunger.
Rome will also provide WFP with a citizen’s office at the heart of the city to allow the agency to work close with the local population.
WFP and Rome are scheduled to host a major international nutritional forum next week.
