The World Food Programme, the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide, estimated that roughly 2.5 million survivors from the devastating typhoon that ravaged the city earlier this month were still in need of food. As a result, between now and Nov. 27, a percentage of World Hunger Relief donations received on Pizzahut.com will be solely directed toward food relief in the Philippines.

Typhoon Haiyan devastated the impoverished nation of 96 million people. According to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, 9.6 million people are affected across 41 provinces, with more than 900,000 people displaced.

"The purpose and intent of our partnership with the World Food Programme is to provide relief through food to those most in need, and nowhere is that need more urgent now than in the Philippines," said Scott Bergren, President & CEO, Pizza Hut.  "We're thankful to the World Food Programme for providing us the opportunity to reach so many people and our thoughts and well wishes go to the displaced people of the Philippines."

Pizza Hut has been a worldwide partner of the World Food Programme since 2007, donating more than $11 million in the U.S. alone in the fight to end world hunger. Those donations have resulted in more than 44 million meals to those in need around the world. In addition to its international hunger relief efforts, the Pizza Hut Harvest Program has donated more than 450 million meals to shelters in the U.S.
