The food hampers will mainly benefit residents in Epworth, Harare South, Norton, Marondera, Rusape, Mutare, Bulawayo and Masvingo.

Speaking about the program WFP said:

The pilot will run for one year. In addition to provision of food assistance through CBT (Cash Based Transfers), this will be accompanied by resilience-building interventions to promote the well-being of vulnerable households in the urban areas and their ability to cope with shocks and stressors in future.

Implementation of resilience-building interventions will start in the first quarter of 2020 upon completion of the baseline exercise to identify the activities through community and stakeholder engagement.

“To implement the response plan at the revised level and reach 4.1 million people at the peak of the lean season, WFP requires an additional US$211 million, which is the funding gap. The total requirement for December to June is US$293 million

Harare and Bulawayo residents have already started receiving the food hamper which comprised of ampers grain, beans and cooking oil.
