Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is odd. The poor spend relatively more on food. If anything redistribution to the poor should mean more imports of food.
You might argue that the main problem is not food but fuel and that the poor have no cars and hence use less fuel. But then simply cutting subsidies or raising a tax on fuel would solve the problem.
