UN Revamps Food Distribution System in Haiti

The United Nations is moving toward a coupon-based food distribution system to help provide rice to 10,000 Haitians a day in each of the 16 food centers around Port-au-Prince. The move follows what officials called a “quick and dirty” initial phase of food delivery, The New York Times reports. In the next 15 days, the U.N. and aid groups will go to communities and distribute coupons, which will entitle each family to receive a single 55-pound bag of rice.
