The COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating food insecurity, interrupting supply chains, and moving more people into hunger than previously predicted. WFP seeks cutting-edge solutions to transform emergency response and to achieve SDG2: Zero Hunger by 2030 for communities impacted by COVID19 and beyond. Innovations are needed more than ever before to achieve this goal.

This is your chance to receive up to $100,000 in equity-free funding, access to WFP operations, hands-on support from technical and industry mentors, and networking with public, private, and government partners to accelerate implementation. Apply for the WFP Innovation Accelerator if your innovations are in the following priorities:

  1. COVID-19 emergency response
  2. Local food security and market access for smallholder farmers
  3. Sustaining and creating livelihoods
  4. Affordable, nutritious diets and awareness
  5. Appropriate energy solutions along the food value chain
