Donation of USDA in several countries
The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that it will donate 64,120 metric tons of U.S. agricultural commodities to several organizations, for a child education and nutrition project in Afghanistan, Albania, Benin, Guatemala, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Moldova, Nicaragua, Vietnam.

The commodities, which include 3,680 tons of rice, 64,120 tons of various agricultural commodities in all, are part of a USDA assistance package valued at around $54,7 million for this project.

The donation will be made under the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program, administered by the Foreign Agricultural Service.

The McGovern-Dole program provides for USDA donations of agricultural commodities to promote education, child development and food security for some of the world’s poorest children. USDA expects to provide 150,000 tons of U.S. commodities to 21 countries under fiscal 2003 McGovern-Dole donation agreements.
