US Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue and President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka visited the NC State Farmer’s Market in Raleigh on Thursday as part of the Trump administration’s Farmers to Families Food Box distribution program. The program, in which Perdue and President Trump also participated two weeks ago in Henderson County, NC, has delivered over 100 million meals across the country.
Perdue: Farmers to Families is a “Win-Win-Win”
Perdue was also on hand for a broadband connectivity announcement in Moore County, NC which will bring high-speed internet to more than 3,000 people.
Following the tour, WPTF/Raleigh’s Scott Briggaman talked with Perdue about Farmers to Families, challenges farmers are facing today, and more.
