92. More food will increase domestic availability
In spite of the realities of the food distribution system. There is no evidence that 100% of production gains will be diverted out of the country. It is safe to say that increased food production will increase domestic availability. Even the fraction that is sold internationally will benefit Africans, by increasing their exports, bringing money into their country.

Absent any actionable plan, your logic is to do nothing and expect the realities of the food distribution system to change. I'll take marginal benefits over absolutely nothing any day of the week. If you have a reasonable plan to change the food distribution system in Africa, I'd like to hear it.
