"What whatever Particular cash crop in the united states have some sort of either subsidy or a crop insurance through the federal government usda Or some something else. Along those lines they. They're they're getting government money in as a result. They're required to report their acreage in. What's in what acreage in any particular crop in any particular year and so this is a layer.

"States and MLS number thirty thirty who'd first Michigan once again here's still in jail welcome back everyone Jerry Andrews you know how how encouraging how innovative and that's really what we're talking about is what we've learned and what Colbert nineteen is taught us and here's a sixteen year old young leader who's who's learned about contactless food drives already implemented one I love it yeah you know what I'm listening to what I hope is that the next CEO of one of our Michigan food banks I mean you know the he's got the passion he's got the drive where the rubber meets the road to get the actual job done and to have that kind of intelligence of doozy Azam and willingness is something that we definitely needed leadership so great to to meet Andrew at least by radio here and I hope everyone listening just can appreciate how much we appreciate him so you know one of the things you said on the show from the out set jury for the three and a half years we've been doing the show here on WGR has been you've said I don't care who solves hunger who creates food security as long as it happens and I've always appreciated that about you you know food bank certainly plays such a large role I mean massive amounts of food that we distribute across America cost Michigan but yet here comes a young man a young leader and lots of other groups to better coming along side of us during this pandemic and there's been you know not really nobody's really been threatened by that we've been much more appreciative of that well we have to be I mean there's enough work for all of us to do and we've been about making a movement right and building that movement to include everyone who wants to have a role in it and and that certainly is donors both cash and food and and also volunteers and all the things that they do it includes all the people that do food drives all the people willing to work with us and be our staff people and there's so many people already involved but we need more people to be involved if we want to have a food secure community we've gotta come together we gotta keep involving more more people so fantastic to see more people getting involved all the time and especially people with leadership ability you know my dad used to sing if you have a leader you have everything and if you don't you have nothing and it is one of those little pieces of advice from my dad that I still carry with me you know you need leaders to help everyone else mobilizing get things done and so Andrews quite quite the the young leader all your ducks in a row the book and it could have been called John Maxwell's where John Maxwell got his leadership principles because and one of John's leadership books he said that everything rises and falls on leadership and that sounds exactly what your dad is saying in so we're thankful for Andrew and his leadership but there's a lot of other people living showing some leadership through this too and you know we don't often hear this song in the media but actually here you go the federal government USDA has has started programs enhance programs and our distributing tremendous amounts of food through our network both nationwide and here in Michigan and even started a couple of new programs to support agriculture farmers and the need across the state for food insecurity and certainly it's been a big part of the reason we've been able to get a lot more food out FEMA has also helped us quite a bit and and so when we think about the the food that's coming through those new programs I think one of the things that I'm proudest about is that the food banks were there to be a partner to the government as it was trying to figure out what's the lowest cost highest value way of reaching more people with more food that they want and need and this food has been amazing the freshness of the produce has just blown me away it's just beautiful you know so a lot of people think about what comes through emergency food is what nobody wants it's just not true it is beautiful food that anybody would want and I'm just so proud to be part of a system that can distribute that high quality consistently every single day it's it's been amazing well one of the programs you're referring to there is the C. Falco program and that's the one that was just recently stood up by the USDA and and so we've they've been really partnering with food distributors and food distributors have been partnering directly with food banks across the nation and across here in Michigan specifically but you know a lot of the other emergency food programs flow through the Michigan department of education and that's been a great help as you mentioned seem all and partnership that we created at the food bank council on behalf of our network with the state of Michigan the S. C. O. C. the state emergency a million and so that's been of tremendous help for all of us as well as FEMA stepping right in and coming along side of this as well so lots of great programming what what who am I missing jury what are some of the things that that are innovative that we've learned and and some of the partners at a come along the side of the sets helped us well I I certainly think that as we continue to understand what the impact is going to be in the community and certainly for the longer term continuing to coordinate with local governments with county governments and you know with with all the other agencies that are trying to help the people that they're serving in and its agencies that wouldn't normally be at our partner network certainly leave a partying a lot with mental health agencies we've been partying a lot with community centers that don't necessarily distribute food on a regular basis who are finding a way to offer their locations for food distributions and we've got other unusual partners like the airport has been a really good partner for being a site to distribute food to people who normally don't need help but who are unemployed right now in and around the airport the work that goes around there as you know airports have been particularly hard hit by the lack of travel and so you know as so those are just some examples of people who are stepping forward and doing more and doing other things and they would normally do because they know people who are affected and they want to help him all all with the goal of getting more food more often more people and we certainly risen to that challenge during these weeks across our network and all of our food banks here in Michigan just just doing above and beyond so we want to wrap up the show in the next segment jury I want to think about just a little bit about.
