Faith in the future: How faith-based organizations are tackling the hunger crisis

Details

September 22
11:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT
Add to Calendar September 22 11:30 am September 22 1:00 pm America/New_York Faith in the future: How faith-based organizations are tackling the hunger crisis

Join us for an event on the sidelines of UNGA 77 in New York where Devex in partnership with World Food Program USA will show how faith-based partners are tackling hunger and making food systems more resilient.

The world is facing an unprecedented hunger crisis. Many food systems are on the brink of collapse due to a combination of conflict, climate change, and the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, many are working toward a hunger-free world. Faith-based organizations and philanthropies are leveraging their close ties with communities to not only tackle these ongoing crises, but also to build the local-level resilience needed to withstand future shocks.

Register for the event if you’re interested in:

  • How tried and tested initiatives are tackling hunger at community levels.
  • Why faith-based organizations need more investment to scale up anti-hunger initiatives.
  • Best practices from WFP USA and partners in building local resilience.

Save your spot to join us online to discuss how global food crises can be tackled by local initiatives — from school meal programs to investments in smallholder farmers.

Please note that registration for the in-person event is invite only. To request an invitation to attend, please complete the application form here.
