WASHINGTON - In 2003, up to 35 million people in Africa will need food aid. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is working with its partners--the World Food Program (WFP), other donors, and the private voluntary community to help meet this need. USAID's 2003 budget request includes $1.18 billion for food assistance, up from the $850 million appropriated in 2002. In addition, USAID is working with the governments of Africa to address longer-term structural problems through agriculture, health, education, and natural resource management programs.
