WHAT?? Are you serious? It's hard to believe, do you have a source for that?
The USDA is rife with corruption as they spend more than 80% of their annual $140+ billion dollar budget on "nutrition education".
My earlier numbers were based off of some older data I had tucked away in my brain. I just looked at the 2017 numbers and here they are. The 2017 budget is $155 billion. We will spend $110 billion on "nutrition assistance" which is comprised of roughly 10 different programs. The largest one being "nutrition education".
