The purpose of this study is to analyze the spatial distribution of the Food Acquisition Program (PAA) along Brazil’s municipalities. More specifically, it seeks to analyze the redesign that was in the program from 2012 resulted in an expansion of municipalities, and favored the points that concentrate most of the farmers in the country. To this end, the modalities of PAA operated by Conab and the states and municipalities were separated. An exploratory spatial data analysis was carried out. The results showed an expansion of program participant municipalities, although the amount has decreased in recent years. This distribution of the participating municipalities benefited all regions of Brazil, focusing especially at the points where family farming is more present. Preliminarily, it can be inferred that the reformulation of the PAA is reaching the goal of increasing the number of municipalities involved in the program.
