The Food Security Sector, activated on 5 April 2012, coordinates the food support-related activities to enhance the response by information sharing, mapping, identifying gaps and avoiding duplication. Regular meetings are held and attended by NGOs, UN agencies and other partners. The Sector, led by WFP, has provided uninterrupted food assistance to Syrian refugees since the start of the crisis in early 2012.
