  • ·       Enjoyed touring farms today with the #yfva & seeing firsthand the important steps growers are taking in Yuma to implement additional preventive controls & further advance produce safety. A New Era of Smarter Food Safety dawning. #progress #collaboration #smarterfoodsafety

@SecretarySonny

  • ·       Government can be a powerful force for good,but government dependency has never been the American dream. At @USDA we're restoring the original intent of SNAP: one that provides a safety net for those in need but encourages accountability & self-sufficiency
  • ·       Just a reminder, this Friday Dec. 6 is the deadline to signup for MFP. Visit http://farmers.gov/MFP  for more info and to find your local FSA office.
