Local and Regional Procurement Project  Success Stories

Through the Local and Regional Food Aid Procurement Pilot Project, USDA is supporting 22 projects in 19 countries that address both emergency response and development food assistance.   Over 1.6 million individuals are receiving food rations through direct distribution, food vouchers, Food for Work activities and school feeding programs.  In total, over 55,000 metric tons of food commodities will be procured locally and regionally under this project.  Below are some success stories from the project.
