Under the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farmers to Families Food Box Program, the country’s Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced more than 100 million food boxes have been distributed in support of American farmers and ranchers affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

“It is incredible to think that in a little more than five months, this food box program has gone from an idea to a reality that has provided more than 100 million boxes of nutritious foods to people in need and along the way has helped to keep farmers and ranchers in business and allowed Americans working in our nation’s food supply chain to get back to work,” said Secretary Perdue.

It should be mentioned here that the program connects food distributors and small farms to help deliver food to faith-based groups and families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
