Action Against Hunger’s global magazine, Hunger Matters, delivers perspectives from the front lines of humanitarian action and the race to end deadly malnutrition. Focused on “recurring crises,” this edition of Hunger Matters explores the cyclical nature of global hunger and the seasonal realities that keep too many communities impoverished from year to year. We invite you to learn more about the ongoing challenges faced by these communities and how our innovative solutions are making a difference.

At Action Against Hunger, we have a history of pioneering the application of cutting-edge tools and techniques to old, persistent problems in aid and development. In that tradition, we are a leading partner of the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP). The CaLP “aims to improve the quality of emergency cash transfer and voucher programming across the humanitarian sector.” In emergencies, distributing some form of cash or vouchers can be much more effective than the classic donations of food, soap, and other standardized sets of equipment that may not be useful to every affected family. Provided local shops are functioning, cash gives the flexibility to buy what’s needed, while keeping shop owners involved in the local economy.

In the following document, Action Against Hunger shares what we’ve learned from our recent experiences using fresh food vouchers in emergency contexts. As a leading partner in the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP), Action Against Hunger has been applying these innovative, market-based vouchers as a way to give crisis-affected families a flexible way to buy what they most need to survive, while keeping food vendors involved in the local economy.
