(INDIANAPOLIS) – U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue will be in Indianapolis, today.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue

The Secretary will participate in a fireside chat, a conservation roundtable, and visit a job training site.

The job training site stop comes on the heels of Secretary Perdue announced last week that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will help move more able-bodied recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) towards self-sufficiency and into employment.

The rule restores the system to what Congress intended: assistance through difficult times, not a way of life.

Secretary Perdue will visit WorkOne Indy at 4410 Shadeland Ave. at 10:30 a.m. to participate in an Employ Indy class for adult education and to meet with SNAP E+T job training participants for an informal conversation about their experiences with the program.
