3 Emergency Food Boxes
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. WFP could send three boxes of these critical foods to families who don’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.
