Farmers Defend Trump Admin's Coronavirus Relief Program
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's coronavirus relief program for farmers faced criticism early on, but farmers hailed the initiative as a success in interview with Newsweek on Monday.
The program, Farmers to Families, sends two-pound boxes of groceries, including fresh vegetables, meat and dairy products, to families in need during the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 65 million boxes sent so far.
"Government got this one right," said Chalmers Carr, who owns and runs Titan Farms in South Carolina. "You couldn't ask for a better one-two combination, period."
