IN Dept Agricultural U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue recently announced details of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), which will provide up to $16 billion in direct payments to deliver relief to America’s farmers and ranchers impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s what folks are saying about USDA’s efforts to assist farmers and families during the COVID-19 Pandemic:
  “In addition to the much-needed relief — the $16 billion that will go to farmers and ranchers to help support them through this difficult time — this Farmers to Family Food Box program is just an amazing initiative… It helps the small distributors. It helps the small farmers who were prioritized in the bids. And of course, it helps those in need. So we’re very excited about this program… And thank you, Secretary, for the hard work of your team in standing up this program so rapidly. We think that it will be extraordinarily successful for our small farmers and, of course, those in need.”
