USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue Thanks America’s Farmers

Sonny Perdue, the Secretary of Agriculture, wants to thank the farmers, the individuals in the food supply chain, and all of rural America.

Perdue says, “This is what I believe Americans do when times are tough, we adapt, we overcome, and ultimately, we will become victorious over this unseen virus.” Perdue goes on to reassure the nation that the food supply chain is strong and it is because of the hard-working individuals of this country.

Perdue goes on to state, “From those who grow our food, those who supply those who grow our food, with those who deliver, process and stock our food in that supply chain...our fellow Americans now know they can depend on you all.”
