Commodities are food items distributed by the United States Department of Agriculture in an attempt to accomplish a twofold purpose. First, it helps to improve the diet of persons in need of food assistance. Second, it helps strengthen the agricultural market for food that American farmers produce.

USDA pays for the initial processing, packaging, and transporting of the food.
