UN to End Food Aid to China


The United Nations' World Food Program says it plans to end food donations to China by the end of this year.

A statement Friday by the U.N. agency says China no longer needs outside help because its thriving economy has lifted millions out of poverty.

Instead, agency director James Morris says it is now looking to China's expertise and resources to form a broader partnership to combat hunger worldwide.

The agency has fed 30 million people in China since it began supplying food donations to the country 26 years ago.
