Food Assistance

FAS provides U.S. agricultural commodities to millions of people in countries around the world through direct donations and concessional programs. FAS’s non-emergency food aid programs help meet recipients’ nutritional needs and also support agricultural development and education. These food assistance programs, combined with trade capacity building efforts, support long-term economic development and help countries make the transition from food aid recipient to commercial buyer.
