Latter-day Saint Charities

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a Christian restorationist church headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, with a worldwide membership of 15 million people. Since 2014, Latter-Day Saint Charities has been an important partner of the World Food Programme. Their sizable support has helped us save and change the lives of people around the world, making measurable progress toward Zero Hunger.

Emergency support: in emergencies, WFP relies on the support of its partners to help us get vital food assistance to the people who need it most. Latter-Day Saint Charities continually steps up to provide support to WFP and our beneficiaries when emergency strikes. 

Home Grown School Meals: Latter-Day Saint Charities is a strong supporter of WFP’s Home Grown School Meals programme, that not only provides all of the benefits of a traditional school meals programme but also supports smallholder farmers and the local economy, creates jobs and performs necessary training sessions. 

Partnership impact:

  • Latter-Day Saint Charities has provided substantial support to WFP during emergencies, beginning with the Ebola crisis in 2014 and since then to combat drought in Ethiopia and assist emergency operations in Syria, Cameroon and Chad.  
  • By supporting WFP’s Home Grown School Meals programs in Cambodia and the Ivory Coast, Latter-Day Saint Charities will help change the lives of students by providing them with good nutrition and allowing them to make education a priority.
