“Food is the best vaccine against chaos”, 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Winner

The United Nations food agency, the World Food Programme (WFP), won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for its efforts to combat hunger. 

The prize is worth ten million Swedish crowns, or around $1.1 million, and will be presented in Oslo on December 10, reported Reuters.

At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has fractured global alliances and go-it-alone has turned ugly, some world leaders say Friday’s awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the U.N. World Food Program was a commitment to the belief that only a concerted effort can save humanity from further disaster.
