the $200 million for nutrition - is that AMerican food shipped abroad or does it pay for food grown in the countries where it is consumed?

I was on the DFW trip to Guatemala in January visiting another DFW grantee Community Cloud Forest Conservation and can attest to everything that Chris is relating. This is the Appalachian region of Guatemala where most girls do not go to school past 6th grade.
