LONDON — The United Nations World Food Program on Friday was awarded the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to combat hunger and food insecurity around the globe.

The body was rewarded 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," said Berit Reiss-Andersen, the chair of the Nobel Committee.

In 2019, the Rome-based organization provided assistance to close to 100 million people in 88 countries who are victims of acute food insecurity and hunger. It is the U.N.'s largest specialized agency and the world's biggest humanitarian group addressing hunger and promoting food security.
