Earlier this week, Vice President Biden and Secretary Clinton joined World Food Program USA in honoring Howard G. Buffett and Bill Gates for their contributions to reducing global hunger through the Partnerships for Progress (P4P) program. 

Together with the World Food Program (WFP), the Gates Foundation and Buffett Foundation helped launch P4P, a public-private partnership which buys local food in low income countries to use as food aid, benefiting both families in need and nearby farmers.
