What they do The World Food Program (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security. WFP is working to build a “world in which every man, woman and child has access at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life.” 

What our partnership does Data literacy is a priority for WFP. Through their partnership with Tableau Foundation, WFP has been able to build different dashboards to visualize food insecurity around the world and help regional decision makers monitor and respond to food security issues more proactively, as well as empower government and nonprofit partners globally to help identify where resources must be invested.
