The nonprofit organization World Central Kitchen (WCK) has announced a second round of its Plow to Plate program in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
This became extremely important when the U.S. Virgin Islands experienced a drought beginning in April that has not abated and continues with minimal relief.
NRCS provides technical and financial assistance to local Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands municipalities and agencies to relieve imminent threats to life and property.
Drought conditions are expected to improve across the islands through September after near-record dryness in April through June.
DOA’s Division of Veterinary Services assists farmers every day to protect the health of their livestock, the public health and the food supply. They are available to assist farmers to meet these recommendations and to help with other livestock health concerns.
The questionnaire was sent out to 100 farmers across the USVI and has yet to be answered by many. The questionnaire asks farmers to prioritize the water resource management issues they think are most important.
In the long-term, Plow to Plate aims to decrease the high rate of food imports into the USVI by supporting local food production.
