iBread for the World is a political lobby which is a coalition of
religious organizations whose interests include hunger and poverty.
2The minimum caloric intake necessary to maintain the average man
is 2,700 calories daily, while for a woman it is 2,000k This figure
probably refers to those individuals who only have access to an
amount of calories less than the minimum. (This is the reason for
the designation of hungry instead of starving.)
3For the purposes of this study and given the type of food aid found
in Guatemala, Title III was not included in this text. Title III
was written into the revision of PL-480 legislation in 1977 (Lappe,
Collins and Kinley 1981). Its purpose is:
to increase the access of the poor in the recipient
country to a growing and improving food supply through
activities designed to improve the production, protec-
tion, and utilization of food, and to assist the well-
being of the poor in the rural sector (from J. E. Baker
in Culver and Yetley 1980:104).
The aid provided under this title is tied to Title I in that it is a
constraint placed on the recipient country by the U.S. as a pre-
requisite to receiving Title I.
Here’s what’s next.
