About "Cargo Preference for Food Aid"
Status Quo policy on US food aid to foreign countries requires at least 50% of the food to be delivered on US-flagged vessels, a policy known as Cargo Preferences for Food Aid, or CPFA. The CPFA requirement used to be 75% US ships, but that was lowered to 50% in 2012 and lobbyists for the maritime industry are successfully telling Congress not to lower it any further. Pres. Trump recently even proposed raising it to 100%, although it appears he has backed off from that idea. CPFA creates delays in food aid arrival in starving countries because they have to wait until US-flag ships are available. Delay means death, because people die while waiting for food to arrive. And in the 2A backup evidence, you can read about the long-term health impacts on children where, even if the food does arrive eventually, the malnutrition they experience while waiting for it leads to lifetime health problems.
