Distributions of food are relatively easy when each site averages only 125 beneficiaries. However, in the early stages of an emergency, conditions can be chaotic and haphazard. Food is distributed to hundreds or thousands of desperately hungry people in a short amount of time, usually in a public setting. However, no matter whether a program operates in a stable environment or an emergency, an effective registration process insures that full rations reach all eligible beneficiaries in an orderly manner.
