USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program

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.

Learn more about the USDA F2F program HERE.

There are no income guidelines for receiving food assistance through the program.
