Description:

The Surplus Agricultural Grant Program (Texans Feeding Texans) is an innovative partnership between the Texas Department of Agriculture, the agricultural community, and the Texas Food Bank Network. The program offers growers an incentive to donate fresh produce that would otherwise be left in the field, offsetting the donor's costs of harvesting and packaging surplus product and supplying the necessary transportation. Launched in 2002, the program was created to facilitate the donation of surplus product to feed low-income families across Texas. The program creates a direct link between Texas-based commodity producers, processors, food banks emergency food providers, and low-income families. Since its inception, TFBN food banks have distributed over 35 million pounds of fresh product throughout the state. Read more about Texans Feeding Texans in The Produce News.
