USDA's Farmers to Families Food Box Program helps stock shelves at food banks

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue made stops across Nebraska Friday, including a visit to Food Bank for the Heartland.

He was joined by Governor Pete Ricketts and Congressman Don Bacon for a tour to assess how critical the food bank is, especially during this global pandemic.

With so many people out of work due to COVID-19, the need to help stock shelves has increased.
