Max Armstrong shares an interesting challenge of abundance facing food banks

Max Armstrong looks at the challenge of USDA’s distribution of surplus commodities to food banks which is a challenge. The abundance of these products and their perishability can be a blessing and a curse for food banks. Release of milk to a Colorado food bank presents an opportunity to help many, but will have to be distributed quickly.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
