Combat global hunger from your smartphone.

Making sure a refugee child has access to a full meal is now as easy as tapping your smartphone. ShareTheMeal, a new, free app launched by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) on Thursday, allows users to help feed one child for a day for only 50 cents. And so far, it's proving that small actions can make a big difference.

More than 100,000 people have been displaced by flooding in Malawi, and scores have died there and in neighboring Mozambique after weeks of rain, officials said Friday. The United Nations World Food Program said it plans to airlift more than 100 metric tons of food to the southern African country Malawi to feed at least 77,000.
