Director of Strategic Partnerships for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) David Austin sits down for a fearless conversation about the real consequences of hunger, and the potential of power to solve world hunger and create positive change on a global scale.

In this interview David identifies hunger as a major driver of social and political upheaval, the immigration crisis, and more. He connects the dots between food and peace, and discusses how his faith feeds his service to the U.N.

Listen in as he describes how the WFP collaborates with more than 1,000 NGOs in 92 countries to feed 114 million people each year. He also discusses how in 2020 the WFP was able to shift their massive supply chain network to help move 60,000 tons of PPE, diagnostic materials, as well as relief personnel to 171 countries in response to the global pandemic – all of which led to a Nobel Peace Prize.

Prior to the WFP, David worked with such organizations as the MJ Murdock Charitable Trust, Mercy Corps, and the U.S. State Department leading a variety of humanitarian efforts including hunger relief and business development in developing nations. David is a strong advocate for American humanitarian leadership, and investing in young people to secure a robust and stable future.
