  • ·        This is a proud moment for America — it’s actually the best of what we do in bringing folks together to help feed people in need while at the same time supporting our producers and suppliers. Cc: @Coastal_Sunbelt, @IvankaTrump, @GovLarryHogan
  • ·        RT @IvankaTrump: Farmers feed America! The $3 Billion Farmers to Families Food Box Program launched today will ensure that food that might have gone to waste will now go to those in need! Fresh produce/meat will be packed into boxes & delivered to food banks + non profits nationwide
  • ·        As our nation reopens and people return to work, we want to continue to be flexible since there is not a one size fits all approach to feeding kids. That’s why we are paving the way for meals for kids to continue through summer.
