Ecuador: Local Production and Quality Consumption Empower Women Farmers
The World Food Programme and local governments in Ecuador buy food produced by women farmers with two goals: To support local production and empower women farmers, and to diversify the diet with healthy and nutritious foods. Through this approach, WFP provides food assistance to Colombian refugees and their vulnerable Ecuadorian host communities. WFP complements the school meals programme and supports poor families with small children.
