Aid is often criticised for breaking 'humanitarian' and 'development' aid into silos; EU aid is often criticised for being overly bureaucratic. Both criticisms are largely unfounded in the case of the EU Food Facility (EUFF) which was set up in response to the 2008 food price spike which threatened millions of people with hunger.
