Nutritional Support Activities

International Food Relief Partnership (IFRP)

The International Food Relief Partnership (IFRP) is a sub-program of Title II food assistance. IFRP supports the production, stockpiling, transportation, delivery, and distribution of shelf-stable, prepackaged foods by U.S. non-profit organizations and Public International Organizations (PIO).

The IFRP grant program accomplishes this by providing multiple small grants annually (via annual RFA, full-and-open competition), to:

1) U.S. based, not-for-profit organizations having 501(c)(3) IRS Tax Code Status (i.e. PVOs & NGOs); 

2) to Public International Organizations (PIOs); and

3) to non-governmental International organizations. 

The small grants are essentially intended for the rapid transport, delivery, and distribution of available specialized food products. It is important to note that only these types of organizational entities are eligible to apply for IFRP grant funding each year. The three (3) currently available specialized food products for transport/delivery/distribution under the IFRP program are two (2) separate, ready-to-use supplementary LNS food products (i.e. Nutributter and/or Plumpy Doz, for infants/young children), and, a fortified vegetable/lentil blended dried soup mix (Harvest Lentil Pro - 404, for general population). All three (3) available specialized food products under the IFRP program are primarily suited for distribution to beneficiaries in institutional settings such as health clinics, schools and community centers and IDP/Refugee sites. To date, the IFRP grant program has provided supplementary food assistance to over 500,000 individuals – including infants/young children, primary/secondary school children including orphans, children and adults living with HIV/AIDS, and at risk (micro-nutrient deficient) adults/elderly.
