Here you go: Biden's timing at the organization, from the WFP annual reports:

He began the role in 2011, and is listed as Chairman in their 2011 annual report. See the board list on page 14:
https://www.wfpusa.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/WFP_USA_Annual_Report_2011.pdf

He is also shown as the chair in the 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 reports. (See the collection of the annual reports shown here. Just scroll down a bit:
https://www.wfpusa.org/about-us/financial-information/annual-reports/)

In 2016, there was new chair, but Biden is still listed as a board member. He continued on the Board in 2017. He is no longer listed as a member in 2018.

The 2010 report is the earliest available on the webpage linked above. However, it does not list the trustees in the report, as the subsequent reports do. So, it's not clear if he was already on the board when he was named the chair.

Also, it's not at all uncommon for chair-persons of organizations to serve a fixed term. He was the role for 5 years. It's perfectly reasonable for him to have rotated out at that point.
