The current rainy season continues to be poor in WFP’s main operational areas, i.e. pastoral districts in the North and marginal agricultural districts in the Southeast and coast areas. As a result, food insecurity is worsening and is not likely to improve, especially among farmers, before the next harvest in February 2010.  The Kenya Food Security Steering Group is monitoring the situation closely, and is preparing to conduct the seasonal assessment in July.
