Written by Alex Orlov
The current "food apartheid" in Venezuela means that if you don't support the president, you won't be getting any help from the government. Food is in short supply in Venezuela, where falling oil prices and inflation have caused an unstable state.
But reports from the country, which has a population of over 30 million, reveal that the government is selectively handing out subsidized food.
Since April 2016, a system called "CLAPs" (Local Committees of Supply and Production) has been going to homes in Venezuela's poorest neighborhoods peddling subsidized groceries, the Washington Post reported.
