Description :
World Food Programme aid has been used in three main ways in urban areas: as free relief after disasters; as part of institutional feeding projects; and as support to urban renewal. The benefits have usually only been temporary. It has proved difficult to design food aid interventions for the urban poor to overcome the causes of poverty in sustainable ways.
