In disaster situations, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) can authorize the Bureau of Food Distribution to release USDA commodities to disaster relief organizations. These commodities are allocated to schools as part of the National School Lunch Program and are stored in schools and warehouses throughout the state. Disaster relief organizations like the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army use the commodities for mass feeding in shelters, comfort stations and other mass feeding sites.
