Spanish term or phrase: Alimentos
Se habla en todo el texto de Alimentos donados del extrerior. Se reparten los alimentos entre la gente pobre, se hace inventario de los alimentos en los almacenes, se preparan balances sobre los alimentos... No creo que se trate de "Food", pienso que puede ser "Allowances".

Gracias!

food supplies
Explanation:
Just another alternative. If you used 'Supplies' alone it could actually include all types of necessities such as medicines, clothes, blankets etc. But this text is referring to food supplies only, I think.

Hola Emilio! Como están las cosas en Perú?

Mi respuesta está tomada del Oxford Superlex (diccionario) y se le añade mucha experiencia propia.

Espero esto te sirva:-)

food aid


Explanation:
I think I would use "food aid" and "food" (and variations for nuances.
I would also check the best use on available documentation (this is the glorious thing about the Internet!).
