Abstract:

The basic question is whether the United States has a national food policy which establishes goals, priorities and programs in allocating food resources domestically and internationally. A review of the current world food situation is undertaken and food production prospects at home and abroad are assessed. U.S. food policies pertaining to grain production, free export trade, overseas donation and aid programs and domestic welfare programs are examined. U.S. food policy, it is concluded, appears from all sectors of our society, and special interests fragment it at a critical moment of our national existance. The need for a carefully chartered and coordinated effort is emphasized if the U.S. is to make difficult choices in allocating its precious food resources for the benefit of the American people and those of the world who have become dependent on U.S. food production.
