I agree with this endeavor. The major mission programs I support already do this because it provides greater control of the funds, assures delivery to the appropriate recipients and supports growers and supplies in the local countries.

The goverment buys the food it donates and then pays to ship it duh
It would be better just ot give money. However that being said we need to worry a bit more about the hungery in America as in take care of our own First
