Currently, food aid is now being distributed in many parts of the world especially the most droughts and war affected developing countries including those in Sub Saharan Africa ((Awokuse,   Over the last half a century, food aid has remained one of the main strategies of assisting the hungry in the world, particularly Africa.

Despite the positive aspects of food aid, and authorizations of some studies such as Singer who argue that there is no correlation between the receipt of food aid and decrease of domestic agriculture production, many others challenge its effectiveness.

The remainder of food aid has been project food aid in recent years; program food aid has been discontinued in these countries.

The distribution of food aid by category of use mirrors the patterns in the respective regions and globally. 5 In sub-Saharan Africa as a whole, emergency food aid nearly doubled from the mids to – Food Aid is an important form of assistance to Third World countries.
