(introduction...)

The document was prepared by WFP in response to a request from the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for a background paper on food aid for the World Food Summit to be held in Rome in November 1996. It builds on WFP's Mission Statement and on recent discussion within WFP's Governing Body.
