The American Commodity Distribution Association (ACDA) has released its 2018 Legislative Issue Paper.
ACDA looks forward to continuing work with the 115th Congress to make responsible improvements in Farm Bill household programs and USDA procurement, along with further action on Child Nutrition Programs.
The USDA Foods program distributes American Agricultural products valued at more than $2 billion each year, with $1.4 billion for Child Nutrition Programs in FY 2017. This distribution makes critical contributions to farmers, ranchers and recipients. Strengthening these programs will benefit more than one in five Americans.
ACDA members are encouraged to visit the public policy page (hyperlink) to stay up-to-date on issues.
