EU food aid programme: is Europe abandoning its poor?

A 480-million euro budget to supply food to Europe's poorest could be slashed by 80%, the prospect of which has alarmed NGOs and charities. In April, the EU Court of Justice said the programme could only use supplies from EU food stocks. But stocks have fallen dramatically in recent years following reforms in the bloc's farming policies, forcing the use of EU money instead to buy supplies on the markets.

Guests:

  • Jan MULDER, Dutch MEP, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe
  • Sandra KALNIETE, Latvian MEP, European People's Party
     

Programme prepared by Marie Billon
