On World Food Day, the US embassy in Kabul tweeted: “According to @WFP_Afghanistan,18.9mn Afghans do not have enough to eat. The U.S. worked with @WFP between January & June 2022 to provide food to nearly 21 million people, and has continued to support the farmers who are the backbone of Afghanistan’s food supply. #WorldFoodDay.”
