Zimbabwe WFP's Health and Nutrition Programme distributes the Super Cereal in a a 10 kilo bag as a monthly ration.  Many of those receiving this supplement are pregnant or breast-feeding mothers, malnourished children under 5 years old, TB and HIV/AIDs patients.  Family food aid is distributed as electronic or in-kind vouchers that can be exchanged at local shops for maize, pulses and vegetable oil.
