The Commodity Procurement Program purchases a variety of domestically produced and processed commodity food products, through a competitive process among approved vendors. The purchase activities support American agriculture by encouraging the consumption of domestic foods. Wholesome, high-quality products, collectively called USDA Foods, are delivered to schools, food banks, and households in communities across the country and are a vital part of our nation’s food safety net.
