Every component of the food supply chain has been tested in recent years ranging from the impacts of the pandemic to climate and weather-related challenges and most recently the Russian invasion of Ukraine. USDA unveiled a framework June 1 showing how to target billions of dollars to help improve the food supply chain and create a more resilient food system.

The framework includes $300 million for transitioning to organic, $375 million for expanding independent meat and processing, $400 million to create regional food business centers and up to $600 million in financial assistance to support the food supply chain infrastructure.
