Mastercard and the World Food Programme (WFP) are partnering on a project to turn the tables on the escalating global problems of hunger and poverty.

The 100 Million Meals initiative combines Mastercard’s knowhow in tech innovation and WFP’s experience in providing support to the world’s most impoverished communities. The pair are working together to raise money and provide 100 million meals for people who are in desperate need.

Ann Cairns, president, International, Mastercard, said: “Mastercard and WFP have already delivered innovative programmes to help build a world beyond hunger and reverse the cycle of poverty. Our 100 Million Meals initiative strives to meet the needs of some of the most deprived and marginalised citizens across the globe. By combining Mastercard’s expertise in technology and payment systems with WFP’s work delivering food assistance around the world, we can leverage innovation to help ensure everyone, everywhere, is included. So far, our journey has already helped provide over 17 million meals, but today we’re stepping up several gears with this ambitious new goal designed to drive greater opportunities and a more inclusive world.”
