The food security issue area focuses on three primary directives; improvement of surplus-food-to-beneficiary-in-need supply chains, provision of healthy school meals for children from food insecure families, creation of effective food delivery mechanisms/networks (vouchers, parcels, food pantries) for vulnerable populations (elderly, unemployed, single-parent households).
It is clear that food supply chains are facing cost-ineffectiveness issues and sustainability of food subsidy programs needs to be addressed but we have seen that core funding with strategic geographic collaborations between NGOs, volunteers, private business and transparent public sector institutions can result in multiplier effect objective accomplishments.
