Food For Work Projects Support Agriculture And Reconstruction in Haiti

Published on 22 April 2010

In the weeks after the earthquake struck in Haiti, the UN WFP rushed in emergency rations such as high energy biscuits and ready-to-eat meals. Over time, the food aid has shifted toward programs that not only fight hunger, but help to rebuild the country. These are Cash and Food for Work projects for Haitians. The WFood Programme uses a 60 percent cash and 40 percent food incentive for Haitian workers to do reconstruction projects. The food ration is enough for a family of five.
