Through the establishment of communication, service and delivery systems, the Bureau of Food Distribution ensures that USDA-donated commodities and recovered produce are made available to eligible recipients. The bureau administers or provides support to five USDA programs in Florida: National School Lunch Program; Summer Food Service Program; The Emergency Food Assistance Program; and the WIC/Farmers' Market Nutrition Program.  Effective July 1, 2012, the Bureau of Food Distribution moved from the Division of Marketing and Development to the Division of Food, Nutrition and Wellness.
