  • USDA OFFERS FREE CREDIT MONITORING TO FSA AND RD FUNDING RECIPIENTS – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will offer free credit monitoring for one year to people whose private identification information was exposed on a Federal Government website that is accessible to the public. The information was removed from the website immediately after USDA learned of the potential exposure. There is no evidence that this information has been misused. However, due to the potential that this information was downloaded prior to being removed, USDA will provide the additional monitoring service. USDA funding recipients who wish to take advantage of the credit monitoring offer will be provided with instructions for how to register. Any USDA funding recipient with questions may call 1-800-FED-INFO (1-800-333-4636) or visit USA.gov. The call center operates from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (EDT), Monday-Friday.
  • Farm Aid wants you to become a family farmer! We need more farmers – we lose almost 330 family farmers a week! A trend we would like to see reverse. The more farmers we have on the land, the easier it will be for all to recognize their hard work and enjoy the fruits of their labor. And, the more we learn about how to grow our own food, the more we will understand how very important farmers are. Want to join the good food team?
