ZIMMERMANN, Silvia Aparecida; ELEUTERIO, Ana Alice  and  DE LA PENA GARCIA, Antonio. Challenges and Responses in the Coordination of Food Public Policies in Brazil during the COVID-19 Pandemic. rev.estud.soc. [online]. 2021, n.78, pp.110-126.  Epub Sep 22, 2021. ISSN 0123-885X.

In Brazil, the National School Feeding Program (PNAE) and the Food Acquisition Program (PAA) are government procurement policies aimed at guaranteeing food security for family farmers and students. Using Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, as a case study, the purpose of this work was to explain the operation, coordination, and reorganization of these policies during the COVID-19 pandemic. A qualitative research methodology was used, based on the analysis of information obtained from interviews, specialized discussion forums, and a review of relevant documents, such as local and national guidelines. The results highlight the need to include crisis management strategies that are associated with the public policies studied and new regulatory frameworks to promote PAA-PNAE synergy.

Keywords : Brazil; family agriculture; food security and sovereignty; PAA; PNAE; regional planning; school meals.
