How are government programs working with farmers to feed more people and minimize food waste? In recent months, the USDA and state agencies have supported the purchase of food from farmers as a way to feed those who are unemployed and to reduce food waste. Even before the pandemic, some food banks were buying food from farmers. This webinar offers an exploration of participation in these new and old programs and their effect on USDA nutrition policy. Join in to hear this conversation with farmers and experts in food policy and food justice. Info and registration here.
