While at Zaatari Camp in Jordan, WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin visited the site of a food distribution where refugees receive rice, bulgur wheat, pulses, sugar and salt in addition to a bread.
WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin met with families at the Zaatari camp in Jordan, who told her of their long and often dangerous journey to escape the violence in Syria.
UNHCR and WFP have set up over 100 communal kitchens around the camp to allow the refugees to prepare their own meals from WFP food basket as per their local taste. This will also diversify the food consumption.
