Farmers to Families Food Boxes
Apparently, Farmers to Families Food Boxes of USDA is part of the government’s program to aid affected farmers from COVID-19.
US Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, reported that they have distributed over 20 million boxes last month. “Over the past few weeks,” he said. “The Farmers to Families Food Box Program has continued to pick up steam, getting food in the hands of more and more Americans while providing much needed support to our agricultural sector,” he shared.
“This milestone is a testament that the program is accomplishing what we intended – supporting U.S. farmers and distributors and getting food to those who need it most. It’s a real trifecta, which is why we call it a win-win-win.”
