Power, purpose, and promise: The corporate sector’s role in moving the needle on global hunger

September 21, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Organized by Devex and World Food Program USA

Unlocking the power of prevention: Deliver in global health impact for all through partnerships

September 21, 2023


In a world facing an unprecedented hunger crisis, the corporate sector has emerged as a powerful force for change. Join Devex and World Food Program USA on the sidelines of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly, as we explore the remarkable power, purpose, and promise of corporate engagement in tackling global hunger.

Faced with the stark situation of 345 million people facing severe hunger and tightening government budgets, NGOs are increasingly turning to the private sector. Corporate leaders, driven by demands from their boards, customers, shareholders, and investors, have been increasing their active engagement, and investing in philanthropy, environmental, social, and governance initiatives that are transforming the humanitarian landscape.

To explore this outlook, we’ll delve into the pivotal role of major U.S. corporations in partnering with WFP USA and other NGOs to leverage financial support, in-kind contributions, and innovative machine learning techniques to tackle critical humanitarian challenges.

Join us in New York or online as we discuss effective solutions for a zero hunger world.

The event will be followed by a networking lunch for in-person attendees where they can connect with industry experts, NGOs, and corporations working to end global hunger.
