IVANKA TRUMP MAKES FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE DELIVERING FOOD
Trump helped deliver food boxes in Apopka, Florida, at another event for the previous administration’s “Farmers to Families” food box program, which was implemented last April as part of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program to help both farmers and Americans in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The former first daughter met with Pastor Paula White and other local faith and community leaders to help distribute more than 1,300 food boxes, a source close to Trump told Fox News.
During her visit, Trump delivered boxes to the homes of disadvantaged community members who were unable to attend the in-person distribution event.
She also delivered boxes to a local shelter for human trafficking survivors, according to the source. . . .
The program required the United States Department of Agriculture to purchase fresh produce, dairy and meat products from American farmers, which is then redistributed to food banks, community organizations, faith-based organizations and other nonprofits serving Americans in need.
The USDA has delivered more than 144 million boxes of fresh produce, milk, dairy and cooked meats to families since the program started. The department announced a fifth round of food purchases worth $1.5 billion on Jan. 4 that will be delivered through the end of April.
A list of USDA-approved contractors for the fifth round of the food box program can be seen on the department’s website.
