FOOD BANKS FIND A SILVER LINING IN TRADE WAR

Food banks across the U.S. are reaping the unexpected rewards of the trade war with China: extra product for families in need. Beginning this month, the U.S. government will begin buying pork, apples, cheese and other ag products from farmers to help ease the pain of the trade dispute then donate those items to food banks. The purchases are expected to add 950 million pounds of food to the roughly 700 million pounds already flowing annually to food banks. (Wall Street Journal)
