USAID Deputy Administrator for Latin America, Steve Olive, accompanied by USAID/Peru Director Jene Thomas, and other agency officials, served hot lunch to children within the framework of the USAID/OFDA project with World Vision Peru to reduce the vulnerability of Venezuelan migrants and Peruvians.

The support through this project includes training for staff, as well as donations of food and cooking equipment. Since the program began about 80,000 hot meals have been delivered in a total of 28 dining rooms.
