The United States Government has set aside US$15 million in additional funding to respond to the critical food security situation in Zimbabwe.
The food aid will be provided through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
The US$15 million brings the total U.S. funding for the current lean season to US$38 million. This ensures that almost 600,000 rural Zimbabweans have adequate food supplies before the next harvest.
