Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump visited a Coastal Sunbelt Produce distributor facility in Maryland on Friday to officially kick off the USDA’s Farmers to Families Food Box Program.
For the tour of the produce distributor facility, Ivanka donned a black utility jumpsuit from Kenneth Cole. Considered a work to weekend jumpsuit, it features a zip front style with a high collar detail, roll-tab sleeve, slash pockets with two cargo chest pockets, and a tie belt at the waistline. It retailed for $129, but unfortunately it is sadly sold out.
She completed the look with a pair of white and black tweed ballerina flats from Chanel. It retails for $750 and is available for purchase at Chanel.com.
Ivanka also wore a black face mask throughout her tour. She accessorized the American-made mask with an American flag pin that was seen pinned on the left side. The pin is the same exact one Ivanka wore to her father’s inauguration.
Jumpsuits are an instant way to make a style statement. Below are similar utility jumpsuit to make like Ivanka that are below $100
The Senior Advisor is helping lead the new Agriculture Department program to retrieve food from struggling farmers and deliver them to those in need from the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. Joined by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Ivanka toured the Coastal Sunbelt Produce with CEO John Corso. The company is participating in the Farmers to Families Food Box Program.
Under the program, part of the $19 billion coronavirus farmer’s assistance program under the administration’s $2.2 trillion CARES Act, the Department of Agriculture is buying up to $3 billion in fresh produce, dairy, and meat from farmers and ranchers. With restaurants and other foodservice establishments shut down or cut back along with hotels vacant, demands have dropped significantly leaving farmers without any distributors to buy their goods. This in turn has lead to billions of food products going to waste.
To kick off the launch, the federal government is buying about $4 million of food from Coastal Sunbelt Produce. The supplier company will package the fruits and vegetables in family-sized cardboard boxes and is expected to deliver over 35,000 boxes a week to food banks, religious organizations, and nonprofits through the end of June.
After the tour, Ivanka addressed the staff at the center to thank them for their hard work in helping to ensure food will be delivered to Americans in need amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“These are 20 to 25-pound boxes of the finest fresh produce, often locally grown, that will be delivered to food banks, to community and faith-based organizations and other nonprofits serving Americans in need across the country,” Ivanka said highlighting the program. “This was a way to ensure that what they produce could get to market and to those who need it. So, we were very excited to be able to fight for the American farmer and rancher, which is so in the heart of this president.”
According to the White House, Ivanka has been working with USDA, the Small Business Administration, and the Treasury Department to include smaller farms in the coronavirus relief programs.
President Trump praised the program at a different event in the White House on Friday.
“It’ll be helping farmers, ranchers, but it’ll be bringing food to some of the food lines and some of the food kitchens that you’ve been seeing on television,” Trump said. “We’re going to be buying $3 billion worth of that food. Great for everybody: our farmers, our ranchers, and the people that need great food.”
