FOOD BANKS: USDA To Provide Fruits And Vegetables
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is looking to help out food banks in Iowa.
Radio Iowa reported the U.S.D.A. will buy more than $126-million worth of fruits and vegetables for families under the Emergency Food Assistance Program.
According to a report released by the U.S.D.A. last year, nearly 13 percent of families do not have access to nutritious foods.
