By NANCY FELDMAN New York — It has been a year since I was able to eat some of the food that was delivered by air, and the only thing that came out of the bag was a little plastic container.
The container was empty.
The food was the only meal that came from Brazil.
But now, thanks to the generosity of the U.S. government, that same food is on the shelves of U.N. food-distribution programs in Brazil and the world.
This month, the U tolth Fund, which provides $1.2 billion each year to support the Unandan diaspora in the U, announced a $5.8 million grant to help the Brazilian government improve its food distribution system.
The Brazilian government is aiming to increase the number of food-purchasing stations by 15 percent by 2020.
This is the first step toward addressing the shortages that have been plaguing Brazil for years, said Ivo Sankar, executive director of the National Center for Agricultural and Food Policy Research.
As a result, the amount of food being delivered is increasing.
The U. tolst Fund has invested more than $6 billion in developing food distribution systems across the world since 2006.
But, with the arrival of a growing number of migrants, many of them poor people from the Urawa region of Brazil’s northeast, the program faces a growing need to increase its capacity.
According to the World Food Program, there are now about 5,400 food distribution stations across the U and Brazil.
Most of them are located in remote regions, in low-income communities and in poor and remote communities, said Sankhar.
In the first quarter of 2020, food-security was one of the key factors in the government’s decision to spend $5 million on a food distribution station in the town of Alhambra, 30 miles from Rio de Janeiro.
It was in the village of Mariana that the food was delivered to the Uppsala Agricultural University, where I spent a week working with the students to ensure that the students were getting their fair share.
For decades, Brazil has relied heavily on air deliveries to its diasporas, many who have migrated to the Americas to escape the violence and poverty there.
But with air deliveries coming in from China and the Ural Mountains, the country has seen an increase in food insecurity.
In 2014, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture reported that 1.2 million of its residents had serious food insecurity, including 6.4 million who lived in households that relied on only a small portion of their incomes.
In 2017, the Ministry of Labor estimated that 20.5 million people in Brazil, or more than a quarter of the country’s population, lived in food-insecure households.
While the Uls are well-aware of the problem, it has not been addressed.
“We don’t have enough food for all of our people,” Sankhara said.
With the help of the World Economic Forum’s food-dispersion program, Sankiros team recently launched a program in the city of Uppsalabia, Brazil’s third largest city.
The project aims to deliver 2.5 tons of food per day, according to the project website.
The program has been successful, with about 4.5 percent of the city’s residents receiving food.
“Food insecurity is a problem that is endemic in the country and it is not going to go away,” Sanka said.
“It will be a long and difficult road ahead for our country.
But we will take it on.”
