During a Presidentially declared disaster/emergency, or during a situation of distress declared by a state or the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), the state may find it necessary to transport USDA Foods from one area within the state to another in support of disaster feeding efforts.  These intra-state transportation costs will be reimbursed by FNS during a Presidentially declared disaster/emergency, and reimbursed by FNS to the extent funds are available during situations of distress.
