“By making this technology available through USDA, we are enabling those most in need access to fresh, locally-sourced meat, dairy and produce for their families,” she added. “The [USDA] Secretary [Sonny Perdue] and I are thrilled to be able to highlight these efforts in the great state of North Carolina!” (RELATED: Celebrate Melania’s Birthday With Her Greatest Looks As First Lady [SLIDESHOW])

Ronnie Lee of Lee’s Produce also talked about how the program has been invaluable in keeping his business going during the pandemic.
“I’m not used to speeches, I’m used to being on a tractor,” Lee shared, who has 250 acres, per a White House pool report. He also explained that “he had restaurants stop coming to pick vegetables and the Farmers to Families Food Box program has been invaluable to his business,” per the report.
