USAID’s Food For Peace Aims To ‘Reduce Need For Future Food Assistance’

U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: Going Beyond Emergency Food Assistance
Matthew Nims, acting director of USAID’s Office of Food for Peace, discusses U.S. efforts to address global food insecurity and “reduce the need for future food assistance.” Nims writes, “Food for Peace is in a unique position within USAID to not only save lives, but also to look ahead to ensure families and communities have the right skills and tools to withstand droughts and other crises that could prevent them from getting enough food. Our ability to pivot from development to emergency assistance when a crisis happens enables us to look for creative solutions to help communities recover faster” (10/30).
