Faced with US sanctions, Venezuela looks at local food production

Sanctions banning US companies from buying Venezuelan oil come into effect on Sunday, making it even harder for President Nicolas Maduro's government to import much-needed food.

A quarter of the population, or seven million people, are in urgent need of humanitarian aid.

Faced with this crisis, the government is discussing making local food production a priority.

Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman reports from El Tocuyo in north-central Venezuela.
