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. 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. The discussion will include: how tried and tested initiatives are tackling hunger at community levels; why faith-based organizations need more investment to scale up anti-hunger initiatives; and best practices from WFP USA and partners in building local resilience.
