The USAID Food Aid Product Mix: Presentation of Stakeholder Feedback
Food aid programs are often used in places where undernutrition is a major public health challenge. The USAID-funded Food Aid Quality Review Phase III (FAQR), implemented through Tufts University, has been conducting interviews with development, nutrition, and health practitioners working on USAID-funded programs that use food aid. In these interviews, FAQR asked: Does the mix of available food aid products meet programming needs? Is guidance on their use helpful and sufficient? How can donors better communicate about food aid with implementing partners? FAQR will present the responses to these questions, elicit feedback from participants on their expdreince with these issues, and explore possible solutions with participants. We invite program designers, nutrition advisors, commodity managers, and others involved in programming food aid to join this conversation.
