USAID Blog Provides Statistics On Reach Of U.S. Food Assistance Programs

Noting World Food Day was observed on October 16, Kate Oberholzer, an information officer with Food for Peace, provides statistics about the reach of USAID food assistance programs in the agency’s “IMPACTblog.” “USAID food assistance programs feed people in emergency contexts and engage in longer-term development activities so that one day we can live in a world where no one needs food assistance,” she notes, highlighting the number of people who have benefited from these programs, the number of countries in which they operate, and the tons of food that have been distributed, among other data points (10/21).
