Embassy Zimbabwe and USAID are providing food assistance to an estimated 360,880 rural Zimbabweans in response to the critical food security situation during the upcoming lean season, between October 2019 and March 2020, in Zimbabwe. The assistance will ensure that vulnerable Zimbabweans have adequate food supplies before the next harvest. Food rations and cash transfers to purchase food are among the assistance being provided and these distributions will help improve nutrition and alleviate suffering for those affected by food insecurity. The United States remains the largest bilateral donor to emergency humanitarian assistance in Zimbabwe and works closely with the World Food Programme to ensure that as many communities as possible will be covered during this challenging time.
