The U.S. Department of Agriculture will buy up to $26 million worth of dried plums for food banks and other food nutrition assistance programs.

The purchase will provide dried plums to thousands of families, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a news release.

The USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service buys foods every year to support the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, the Summer Food Service Program and other federal programs.
