Yeah, I don't see how that program helps at all.
There are costs associated with food distribution.
Hmmm. I guess I can see how it can help. But, why not use the 7.5 mil absent the corn to invest in prod. improvements/dist. methods?
I'm not following
Well, just from the post it seems like they need $10 mil. to support food programs in Zambia. They take $2.5 mil. from corn production and reduce rations until they meet $10 mil. Then when that's reached they use some for food rations and some to support corn farmers production. So why not cut the $2.5 mil in corn and use the $7.5 mil to provide rations and support improvements?
Nevermind though, I didn't take into account that the corn investment probably goes toward a larger general food provision.
