Note: Some operations have negative 2008 shortfalls which have been zeroed out. Therefore total resources mobilized and total shortfalls are not equal to total resources to raise. Also, when a project has closed, any shortfall is zeroed out.

Therefore, taking into account resources already mobilized (including carryover stocks), the organization currently needs to mobilize just over US$2.7 billion.

Contributions to WFP

As of 13 January 2008, WFP has confirmed over US$236 million in contributions for the current year. The USA is the top donor, with over US$127.6 million, followed by the Netherlands and Italy.
