This summer, WFP purchased 500 tons of rice from small farmers in Torbeck. The food will be eaten by children enrolled in the country's schools. Developing links between farmers and the school meals program is a priority for WFP Haiti because it's an effective way to support the development of competitive markets, productivity and to increase farmer’s revenues.
