Stephen Anderson, Country Director of World Food Programme encouraged everyone in taking their part in fighting hunger. "World Hunger Relief is an innovative global campaign which allows the public and private sectors to come together and address one of the most pressing issues of our time – the silent crisis of world hunger," he ended.

The World Hunger Relief campaign, first launched in 2007, is the world’s largest private sector effort on the issue of hunger. In the past three years, YUM!
