Abstract

This research uses data from a nutrition program implemented by Land O' Lakes International Agriculture division through the U.S. Agency for International Development and funded by the Millennium Challenge Account. The combination of foods in this program includes a tortilla, cheese, and milk. The United Nations World Food Programme provides rice and beans in Honduras. The two programs (and their combination) serve as a basis for better understanding the mix of foods in a low cost diet and the food policy options for food aid in Honduras. This research is of interest to managers of agricultural and food firms since they are heavily involved in the supply chain for distribution of US food aid.
