Apparently Americans just don't eat enough cheese -- there's a surplus of 11 million pounds. And now the US Department of Agriculture is buying it.
Why? The cheese will go to food banks and families in need, and the money will help dairy producers.

Which not everybody is thrilled about, BTW:
So there are droughts bc of dairy farms yet we're going to keep them in business when no one even wants the dairy? ? https://t.co/yDLI2nUqxj
