Provision of this grant is part of the Keeping Food Markets Working (KFMW) programme managed by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) through funding from the Dutch Government and the Global Affairs Canada (GAC). GAIN has developed the Keeping Food Markets Working (KFMW) programme as an emergency response to the COVID-19 crisis, providing rapid support to food system workers and small and medium enterprises supplying nutritious foods in order to keep food markets open.
