Pope Francis meets with executive director of World Food Program
Pope Francis met with Ertharin Cousin, executive director of the World Food Program. 

The WFP is a voluntarily funded agency that is part of the United Nations. It's in charge of fighting global hunger by providing food to those in need. Founded in 1961, it currently operates in over 70 countries and offers assistance to more than 90 million people.  

The Pope had already addressed the issue of world hunger when he spoke to members of FAO  recently at the Vatican.  However, this is the first private audience Cousin and her collaborators have had with the Pope. The Executive Director was also head of a delegation of WFP that was present during the Pope's inaugural Mass back on March 19th.
