World Food Programme

Through the timely provision of the right quantity and the right kinds of foodstuffs, UNHCR and WFP seek to ensure the restoration or maintenance of a sound diet through a balanced and culturally acceptable food basket.

While UNHCR has the primary responsibility for determining the nutritional standards and for the implementation of special feeding programmes, the two organizations conduct joint food assessment missions and cooperate in the distribution of food rations and the establishment of planning figures concerning numbers of beneficiaries.
