Farm Aid Package to Include NSLP and SBP Commodities Purchasing

2018-08-28

As part of a $12 billion farm aid package, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) will administer a Food Purchase and Distribution Program to purchase up to $1.2 billion in commodities for nutrition assistance programs, including school lunch and breakfast. AMS will work with USDA’s Food and Nutrition Services to distribute products to State Agencies that participate in the NSLP and SBP. SNA recently urged the Secretary of Agriculture to use these commodity purchases to support school nutrition programs. More details on the Food Purchasing and Distribution Program can be found in USDA’s press release.
