United States Foreign Aid Officials Visit MANA Factory
On Tuesday, August 21, MANA had the honor of welcoming foreign aid officials from USAID, Food for Peace (a program of USAID), and USDA to our RUTF facility in Fitzgerald, GA. The officials took a tour of the factory and participated in a taste test. Dina Esposito, Director of Food for Peace, explained that their relationship with MANA “is part of [the] effort to revamp the American Food Aid basket and to make it more nutritious. [RUTF] is really a miracle product that has worked to transform the way we treat severe acute malnutrition” (WALB 10).
