The program in Nebraska is trying to find ways to link farmers
with nearby consumers and develop regional food distribution
systems.

The USDA awarded a $79,534 grant to the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln to support the work being done with the Center for
Rural Affairs.

The grant is part of a national program to help create new
opportunities for American farmers and businesses.

Deputy Agriculture Secretary Kathleen Merrigan says the agency
wants to explore new approaches to marketing food and other
agricultural products.
