USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program
As COVID-19 has struck the nation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) was pleased to announce the Farmers to Families (F2F) Food Box program as a part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act helping to purchase and distribute agricultural products from across the country and get them into the hands of those in need. The program works with suppliers packaging fresh produce, dairy and meat products into family sized food boxes then transport them to organizations like the Great Plains Food Bank.

There are no income guidelines for receiving food assistance through the program.
Below find a list of Great Plains Food Bank distributions of the USDA F2F Food Box program.
