Quotes

...for farmers markets across the country to host special events to showcase all the tremendous services they provide," said Secretary Vilsack. "Farmers markets play a key role in developing local and regional food systems that support family farms, and help grow rural economies. They bring communities together, connecting cities with the farms that support them and provide Americans across the country with fresh, healthy food."
"Consumer demand for organic products is surging across the country," said Secretary Tom Vilsack. "To meet this demand, we need to make sure that small farmers who choose to grow organic products can afford to get certified. Organic food is now a multi-billion dollar industry, and helping this sector continue"
...Feed Families Campaign,” said Anne Alonzo of the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service which has been leading the campaign for the past two years. "Feeding those in need is one of the most important things we do at USDA and throughout the rest of the federal government. I'm delighted that our engagement with AmpleHarvest.org which goes back to 2011 now enables us to also help millions of government employees across America donate fresh food to the needy in their community. I encourage everyone who has a green thumb to visit www.AmpleHarvest.org/FFF to find a food pantry in their own community and generously donate whatever fresh food they've grown that they're unable to use. Working together, we can reduce food waste and hunger in America with the healthiest food we have - the bounty of our harvests.”"
...proud that the USDA grade mark appears on their egg cartons," said Anne Alonzo, Administrator for the Agricultural Marketing Service of the USDA. "20 billion approved Eggland's Best eggs speaks volumes about the brand's focus on quality, which is something we highly value at the USDA."
