Strengthening U.S. Food For Peace Program Would Help Save More Lives

Huffington Post: The Real and Heroic Hunger Games
William Lambers, author and blogger

“…The U.S. Food for Peace program is the largest donor of this food aid. The government decides each year how much funding to allocate toward Food for Peace. … Food not only saves lives, but it gives people hope. It gives communities, whether in South Sudan or other countries, a chance to build peace. … Worldwide, there are more people displaced by war than any time since World War II. They are hungry. They need life-saving food that can rescue their child from the deadly malnutrition. Malnutrition is always the partner of war. We can save them, if we have the will. We can increase and strengthen the Food for Peace movement…” (2/24).
