A team led by Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy faculty has been carrying out a Food Aid Quality Review (FAQR) for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Office of Food for Peace (FFP). FAQR seeks to provide USAID and its partners with actionable recommendations on ways to improve nutrition among vulnerable people for whom the direct distribution of food aid can make a significant impact. The project is doing so by integrating the latest science on nutritional needs of beneficiary populations across the developing world and a growing understanding of the role of specially-formulated commodities in meeting defined nutritional needs. 

Sustainable Achievements for FAQR

  1. US food aid products redesigned to be fit for purpose
  2. Industry - standard product specifications and shelf - life testing protocols established
  3. Global standards set for food aid (aligning UN and US agencies)
  4. Open access evidence on successful food aid products and programming made possible
  5. Innovations in food aid packaging
  6. Cost-Effectiveness evidence, tools, and approaches applied to food aid product and programming choices
