Assume about 1 million people situated about 500 km inland from the seaport dispersed over an area of 100 km x 100 km are in need of food. Design a supply chain for food aid (grains such as wheat or rice) for these people.
When designing the supply chain briefly state how the food would arrive, where and how it is to be stored, how frequently it is to be distributed, where the distribution centers are to be located.
You may assume 500 grams is needed on average per person per day. The situation is expected to continue for at least four months, however, may extend to 6 months or beyond.
The homework should consist of approximately half a page of writing and half a page of figures (not to exceed 1 page).
