The USDA program is an absolutely free way for agencies to provide healthy, nutritious products to needy families.
The USDA purchases food from vendors in bulk, including processing and packaging, and distributes that food to States across the country. Those States, in turn, disburse that food to Foodbanks. Our Foodbank provides USDA products to agencies so that they can distribute said products at the local level. The amount of food received by each State depends on the State’s low-income and unemployed population.
This program specifically targets low-income families and individuals through eligibility requirements which ensure that their income is below the poverty level. Recipients can only receive USDA once per month.
