U.S. International Food Assistance Report - FY 2015

Speeches Shim

In fiscal year (FY) 2015 the United States Government once again visibly demonstrated the compassion and generosity of the American people through its provision of nearly $1.9 billion of food assistance shown in Table 1. These contributions not only saved lives, but also rebuilt livelihoods, generated income, improved literacy and nutrition, strengthened resilience and mitigated the impacts of future crises by facilitating disaster preparedness. They enabled our partners to reduce malnutrition among women and children, increase agricultural production, improve water sources and sanitation, strengthen education through school feeding, and address many other identified needs. Finally, they made important contributions to the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative, Feed the Future.
