Haiti Food Distribution
WFP works closely with partners on the ground. Food distribution in the Adventist University campus in Carrefour is handled by ADRA, an NGO.
Light, nutritious and easy to distribute - high energy biscuits are a life line in the first days after an emergency.
Among the quake victims, children are a top priority for food assistance. WFP is also bringing in supplementary foods specifically designed for children’s nutritional needs.
After the emergency phase, WFP will establish field kitchens so homeless people
can receive cooked food like rice.
The distribution of high energy biscuits and ready to eat meals is being extended from the capital to other quake-hit areas.
It is estimated that more than 2 million Haitians will need emergency food help for the next 6 months.
WFP is streaming humanitarian assistance into Haiti, opening up air, sea and land corridors, and rehabilitating emergency telecoms systems for the entire humanitarian community. We aim to bring weekly rations to 2 million people over the next few weeks.
