Veep launches food voucher programme

Published on 12 February 2009

Vice-President George Kunda has launched the peri-urban food voucher programme in response to increased food insecurity which has led to heightened levels of malnutrition. Mr Kunda said the food voucher programme would also be extended to other needy areas across Zambia, adding that it would be implemented on a pilot basis in Lusaka’s eight townships among them Chipata, Chawama, Chazanga and Mandevu. [...] Mr Kunda said with the support of the United Nations System, comprising the United Nations (UN), World Food Programme (WFP) and the Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASD), the programme would benefit a lot of people in the country.
