In South Sudan, food aid is used as a weapon and is either looted and destroyed or blocked from reaching those in areas controlled by the opposition. Similar instances occur in Somalia where aid organizations are heavily taxed, which results in additional funds that are used to perpetuate the conflict.

In fact, receiving U.S. food aid literally feeds the violence and is positively correlated. The US has long been, and remains, by far the donor which reports the greatest value of food aid in its ODA statistics. Other large donors of food aid are the European Union, Japan, the UK, Canada, Germany and the World Food Programme (WFP).

The global impacts of food aid and the management of specific programmes are therefore largely determined by the practices of these major donors. The Development Effectiveness of Food Aid: Does Tying Matter. provides a detailed look into two food aid issues.

First, the study assesses the effectiveness of the various uses of food aid to promote food which recognised that DAC members’ policies concerning food aid may be guided by agreements in other international fora governing the.

The other main approach to distinguish food aid is by looking at its sources or modes of supply: direct transfers, including all food aid originating from a donor country; food aid purchases or exchanges in one developing country for use as food aid in another country; and, local purchases, procured in a country and used as food aid in the same.
