1 Emergency Food Box
In crisis situations when people are entirely dependent on food assistance, WFP delivers shelf-stable foods that can feed a family of five for a month. The boxes contain a grain like wheat flour or rice, fortified vegetable oil, iodized salt, and lentils, chickpeas or other beans. For $75 dollars, WFP could send a box of these critical foods to a family who doesn’t know where their next meal will come from. **The size and composition of WFP’s food box is tailored to local preferences, demographic profiles, activity levels, climatic conditions, local coping capacity and existing levels of malnutrition and disease.
