Food Purchasing

The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) purchases a variety of 100% domestically produced and processed food products for USDA Feeding Programs managed by the The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS).  These purchases support American agriculture by providing an outlet for surplus products and encouraging consumption of domestically-produced foods.  Food Purchasing is a coordinated effort between AMS and FNS.
