Cargill has voiced support for changes to the U.S. program, founded in 1954, that provides food to developing countries. "Cargill believes it is time we reassess the program to make certain it is efficient and effective in meeting the increasing needs and allow for some flexibility in the delivery of a portion of food aid assistance so that food can get more quickly to people on the brink of starvation," the company said in a statement.
