Through emergency and development food assistance programs, USAID works to save lives and reduce food insecurity in times of crisis and situations of chronic food insecurity. USAID emergency food assistance includes both in-kind food aid and cash-based assistance in the form of local and regional procurement of food commodities, cash transfers, and food vouchers, where market conditions allow. Using a multi-sectoral approach, USAID addresses chronic food insecurity and poverty through activities such as agriculture, emergency preparedness, health, natural resource management, livelihoods, nutrition, and vulnerable group feeding, among others.  To learn more about these programs, click on the individual country fact sheets listed below.
