NCC Hails USDA Bonus Purchase of Chicken To Benefit Needy Families

National Chicken Council President George Watts expressed strong appreciation to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer for the Agricultural Marketing Services’ (AMS) program that purchased chicken products for needy families and other worthy recipients. Mr. Watts said “At this special time of year and at this time of difficult economic conditions for many families, the National Chicken Council (NCC) is most grateful to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Edward Schafer and his staff for working with NCC to have a bonus purchase program for chicken. By providing chicken through this program, USDA is helping feed many economically-stressed Americans while, at the same time, helping to stabilize the chicken market. NCC looks forward to continuing to work with AMS to help ensure full success of the program as delivery of the products begins in the new year.”
