The U.S. has a long history of administering the largest, most diverse, reliable, safe, and effective food assistance programs in the world. NAMA is proud of the role it plays in providing in-kind commodity and nutritional support in alleviating world hunger.

NAMA supports international food assistance programs and advocates for the continued use of U.S. food donations in the USAID Food for Peace and McGovern-Dole Food for Education Programs.

NAMA supports the bipartisan American Farmers Feed the World Act to restore Food for Peace to its roots as a purely in-kind commodity donation program.
