USDA, Planet AID, school feedingThe excitement in Mozambique is palpable as the Planet Aid and USDA school-feeding project gets underway. This week the corn-soy blend arrived in the port city of Maputo. The food commodity will be used to provide 34.2 million daily school meals to 60,000 school children.  The commodity is the cornerstone of the three-year $20 million dollar program that will also involve training primary school teachers and address other critical community needs.
