FFP’s Mission is to reduce hunger and malnutrition and ensure that adequate, safe and nutritious food is available, accessible to, and well-utilized by all individuals at all times to support a healthy and productive life. Through its emergency programs, FFP provides food assistance to save lives, reduce suffering, and support the early recovery of populations affected by both acute and protracted emergencies.

FFP responds to emergency situations, or crises, where the food supply is severely disrupted and populations lack access to sufficient food through normally available means such as production, barter, or purchase in markets. Such situations may involve drought, floods, earthquakes, and/or civil conflict. An economic shock such as a rise in food prices due to global price increases, or reduced remittances due to a recession, will be considered an aggravating rather than primary factor for determining eligibility for emergency food assistance. In addition to resource transfers to help populations meet immediate food needs, FFP emergency programs may be accompanied by complementary programming that has a direct impact on food security.

Across all programs, FFP strives to uphold the following principles:

  • Do no harm in the process of providing food or other food assistance resources;
  • Strive to keep the interests and voice of the vulnerable at the center of our work; 
  • Adhere to the highest standards of human rights, respect and dignity in our provision of assistance;
  • Provide access to food to those in greatest need in an impartial manner, without bias or prejudice; and 
  • Enable communities to find durable means to meet their own food security needs.
