To "Request a Transfer" of Pounds for the Direct Diversion Program, SFAs should connect with the Processor and/or Broker to discuss options, availability of pounds, and send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the request is submitted to DPI USDA Foods Team, we will review and approve, modify, or deny the request based on available pounds and the circumstances of each request.
