Vegetables are spoiling and milk is getting dumped as food supply chains have been cut off by the coronavirus crisis. WESH reports vegetables are rotting in Florida and other states because demand has dropped as restaurants and schools across the country have been shut down. You can now buy a 25-pound box for just $5, factory direct. But for others, they can’t even give their crops away. Losses are already in the millions and mounting every day.
Thousands of acres of fruits and vegetables grown in Florida are being plowed over or left to rot because farmers can't sell to restaurants, theme parks or schools nationwide that have closed because of the coronavirus.https://t.co/2Lt60CcZV4
