In sub-Saharan Africa, most of this wastage happens following harvests: poor storage facilities lead to crops being spoilt by rain or infested by insects and rodents.For grains alone, the amount lost each year is estimated at US$4 billion. In Zambia, WFP is using a very simple yet effective invention to suffocate insects and save school meals served under the country's Home-Grown School Feeding Programme.
