Refugee Food Aid - Part I

There are nearly 26 million refugees worldwide, according to the United Nations. High poverty and unemployment rates often seen among this vulnerable population means that even after they've fled their home countries, many are still struggling with food security. In the first of our two-part special, NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Christopher Livesay takes us to Lebanon, where the U.N. World Food Program is piloting out-of-the-box digital solutions, from using apps to get the best food prices to teaching refugees computer and coding skills. This report is part of our 'Future of Food' series, which is supported by the Pulitzer Center.
