CLAREMORE, Okla. – On Tuesday, June 9, the USDA, RCB Bank and Claremore Public School employees teamed up to hand out 1200 boxes of food and 600 gallons of milk to people in the community.
“The collaborative effort by RCB Bank employees and the Claremore Public School staff was a great example of how we can serve our community,” said RCB Bank Market President Matt Mason. “It was certainly enjoyed by all who were there.”
As part of the Coronavirus Farm Assistance Program, the USDA is partnering with farmers, ranchers, specialty crop producers, food processors and distributors, and non-profit organizations to ensure that all Americans have access to the fresh and wholesome food they need during the COVID-19 National Emergency.
“This program will not only provide immediate relief for our farmers and ranchers, but will allow for the purchase and distribution of our agricultural abundance to help our fellow Americans in need,” said U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue.
The program will purchase $1.2 billion dollars in fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat products, and transport them to food banks, community and faith-based organizations, and other non-profits serving Americans in need from May 15 through June 30, 2020.
