Local and Regional Food Aid Procurement Program

Through the Local and Regional Food Aid Procurement (LRP) Program, FAS partners with private voluntary organizations, cooperatives, and the World Food Program to implement field-based projects that provide development assistance and emergency relief using locally procured commodities.

The LRP program complements existing U.S. government food assistance programs, especially the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program, which supports school feeding and maternal and child nutrition projects around the world.
