Where is Arizona on the LFPA program? How are local producers participating?
AzFBN- Angie Rodgers
44:03
Application is in for LFPA. I look every day!! About 25 states approved so far!
AzFBN- Angie Rodgers
44:54
No contracts have been negotiated yet so no producers yet.
AzFBN- Angie Rodgers
45:02
They will come after USDA negotiations with DES.
Karalea
45:30
Any idea what the hold up is?
AzFBN- Angie Rodgers
45:52
They approve 1-3 states/tribes per week so I think they are just slow. No reason to think our application was bad.
Karalea
45:54
Thanks!!
AzFBN- Angie Rodgers
46:14
Maybe they want to give us all the "leftover money?"
AzFBN- Angie Rodgers
46:24
Wishful thinking on my part!
Karalea

If producers want to make sure they are alerted when LFPA is approved, they can reach out to dionne@azfoodbanks,org and she will make sure to connect.
Melanie, LAMA and GCS Hunger Leaders Network

Nothing here. Given the first slide with the conservative outcomes in the primaries, I would lean to no.
