This reform will not adversely impact North American farmers. In fact, the majority of funds will still be for the purchase, transport and related costs of North American commodities. U.S. farmers know firsthand the difficulties of farming and do not want their commodities to displace the crops raised by small farmers overseas. They know that small farmers overseas will not continue to produce if they cannot sell their crops and the vicious cycle of hunger will continue.
The proposed changes in food aid assistance will help to save more people as well as increase the cost-effectiveness and flexibility of our aid.
