Throughout most of the 1960s Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe (CARE) and the American voluntary agencies had enjoyed predominantly friendly relations with both Democrat administrations. The Kennedy years had augmented their visibility as private players in food aid, relief, and development assistance, despite growing competition from United States Agency for International Development (USAID) experts and agencies such as the Peace Corps. The World Food Conference had a catalytic effect on CARE and the American voluntary agencies, which had learned from their experience in Rome that they needed to step up their efforts at coordination on the international level. In the interim, CARE would linger somewhere between being a multinational organization and being a transnational enterprise, with largely independent entities without an identifiable national center, spread around the globe.
