The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has received the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize "for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict". The UN agency says it delivered food assistance to almost 100 million people last year around the world. "In the face of the pandemic, the World Food Programme has demonstrated an impressive ability to intensify its efforts," stated the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
