The Biden administration has announced its framework to transform the country’s food system.
During an event at Georgetown University on Wednesday, Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack detailed more than $2 billion in funding to improve markets.
“The transformation that needs to take place has to be comprehensive,” Vilsack said. “It has to touch on all elements of our food system: production, processing, distribution and aggregation, and market development.”
He says the plan will address longstanding issues intensified by the pandemic.
