World Food Assistance 2017 is motivated by the vision of a world without hunger. This vision is encapsulated in Sustainable Development Goal 2 to End Hunger, Achieve Food Security and Improved Nutrition, and Promote Sustainable Agriculture. The report that follows explores how food assistance contributes to that vision. By “food assistance” we do not mean old-style “food aid” handouts, but rather the full range of instruments, activities, and platforms that empower vulnerable and food-insecure people and communities so they can regularly have access to nutritious food. More than 100 million people currently face severe food insecurity and almost 800 million suffer under chronic hunger, so World Food Assistance 2017 could not be more relevant or timely.
