About Us

The WFP Trust for India, operating as a non-profit organization affiliated with the UN World Food Programme, is dedicated to facilitating widespread access to adequate, safe, and nutritious sustenance that caters to individuals' dietary requirements for an active and healthy existence. We support and acknowledge the efforts of the Government of India towards ending hunger and malnutrition in all its forms, and we are committed to working towards reinforcing the country's food security, addressing malnutrition, and ensuring that the spectre of hunger is eradicated. Our overarching aspiration is aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger. We diligently contribute to the Government of India's endeavours to establish a food-secure nation.


At the WFP Trust for India, our mission revolves around empowering vulnerable communities, fostering sustainable agricultural practices, enhancing nutritional aspects, and fostering resilience against the multifaceted challenges of hunger and malnutrition. By contributing to the efforts of the Government of India, we can tangibly influence the lives of millions and contribute to India’s comprehensive progress.

Our Aims

Strengthening Food Systems: We seek to elevate agricultural techniques, enhance storage and distribution mechanisms, and promote sustainable farming methodologies. Our goal is to ensure a consistent and sustainable food supply throughout the nation.

Addressing Malnutrition: We acknowledge nutrition’s pivotal role in breaking the poverty cycle and fostering holistic development. Employing targeted interventions, such as school feeding initiatives, nutritional education, and the promotion of fortified food items, we contribute to strengthening food safety nets which combat malnutrition and enhance the well-being of vulnerable segments, particularly women and children.

Enhancing Resilience in the Face of Disasters: India is prone to natural disasters that can severely impact food security. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen disaster response mechanisms, provide emergency food assistance, and support capacity building. By bolstering resilience, we aim to ensure that affected communities can access adequate food during emergencies and recover swiftly.

Leveraging Technology and Innovation: We harness the potential of technology and innovation by integrating digital tools, data-driven solutions, and remote sensing technologies into our programs. This incorporation of cutting-edge advancements enhances our initiatives’ efficiency, efficacy, and scalability, allowing us to reach more beneficiaries and generate a greater impact.

Cultivating Collaborative Partnerships: Collaboration and partnerships stand as fundamental pillars in addressing complex challenges such as hunger and malnutrition. We engage closely with government bodies, civil society entities, academic institutions, and the private sector. By leveraging their expertise, resources, and networks, we collectively foster an inclusive and holistic approach towards crafting sustainable solutions for India’s food security.
