John McCallum

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and 5th District Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers look over boxes of fresh farm produce at the Share Care facility in Liberty Lake. Perdue and McMorris Rodgers visited the facility as part of a Farmers to Families food box event Thursday afternoon, June 18. Share Care is an online food co-op that connects families in need of fresh food with growers within a 100-mile radius of Liberty Lake. The co-op is one of many local and regional food distributors that has partnered with the USDA's $3 billion Farmers to Families food program, which has distributed more than five million food boxes since its inception in mid-April as part of the federal government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
