Secretary Perdue “I want to assure you that our food supply chain is sound”
Secretary Perdue: This is
Sonny Perdue, Secretary of Agriculture, USDA. And I know it’s a little anxious
when we see those barren store shelves and grocery
shelves there, but I want to assure you that our food supply
chain is sound; it’s healthy. People are on the job
stocking those stores, processing that food.
Our inspectors are safely guarding that food and
expect them day by day. You can count on it, your
food is going to be there. But just let me remind you,
use what you need. It’s like a buffet, don’t
take more than you use in a week or two. And don’t try
to hoard, so your neighbors and other communities can
have what they need. Thank you. You’re going
to have enough.
