Increased Funding to Feed Children

Several weeks ago, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the US would be spending an additional $80 million to fund four projects to feed children in Africa. This funding is in addition to the $95.5 million allocated in December. All together, the programs are expected to feed 4.2 million children in 19 countries.
