On Friday, the USDA approved $1.2 billion in contracts for Farmers to Families Food Box, which seeks to move surplus food out of the market and into food banks.
“The USDA approved $1.2 billion in contracts for the Farmers to Families Food Box Program designed to connect excess meat, dairy and produce on farms with families facing food insecurity” the Farm Bureau said in an online release.
“The funding far exceeds the $100 million per month the department initially planned for the program, due to high interest and need. The program will purchase $461 million in fresh fruits and vegetables, $317 million in dairy, $258 million in meat and $175 million in a combination box of fresh produce, dairy or meat products.”
