Borden, a US dairy company founded in 1857, has been awarded the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) largest contract through its new Farmers to Families Food Box Program as part of the Coronavirus Farm Assistance Program (CFAP).

The contract will enable Borden to supply 700m servings of fresh fluid milk for free to qualifying 501(c)3 organizations from Friday, May 15.

"Borden applauds the USDA for taking this monumental step to ensure that Americans have convenient access to nutrition during this difficult time in our nation's history. This USDA contract allows Borden to exponentially grow our coronavirus relief efforts that are already under way,"​ said Borden CEO Tony Sarsam.

"The 3,300 people of Borden are incredibly proud to further support our communities and eager to begin fulfilling more donation requests immediately."

Through the CFAP, the USDA is purchasing and distributing up to $3bn of agricultural products, including fresh produce, dairy and meat, to those in need.
