Assistance to Vulnerable Groups in the Gaza Strip
The Assistance to Vulnerable Groups (AVG) in the Gaza Strip targets the most vulnerable and food insecure non-refugees living under the deep poverty line. In 2012, WFP assists 115,000 beneficiaries in cooperation with CHF International.
Households receive a food ration composed of fortified wheat flour, pulses (chick peas) vitamin A-enriched vegetable oil, sugar and iodized salt.
In the Gaza Strip, WFP prioritizes local purchase of the food commodities (such as fortified wheat flour) in order to stimulate the local market and local production at the micro-level.
