During December 2018, the sector partners assisted more than 1.4 million individuals with food assistance (through in-kind distribution or cash transfers) in the three most affected north-east states of Nigeria. The largest gap identified remains in Adamawa State, followed by Yobe State and Borno State. The sector continues to advocate for the inclusion of condiments as part of food assistance packages and the need for cooking energy and fuel-efficient stove provision. Lack of condiments and cooking energy remains a challenge particularly impacting women and girls in informal and formal camp-like settings who are responsible for cooking food at home based on their perceived gender roles.
