Pence says U.S. food supply is strong
Gordonsville (US), Apr 1 Vice President Mike Pence says Americans will have enough food and supplies to get through the coronavirus pandemic.

Pence said America''s food supply is “very strong” on Wednesday as he toured a Virginia distribution center for Walmart, the world''s largest retailer.

Shelves at grocery and other stores across the U.S. were picked clean of toilet paper and other essentials at the onset of the pandemic.

Pence toured a chilly warehouse for perishable goods ranging from potatoes to bananas. He had removed his suit jacket and sported a Walmart associate''s badge that said "Mike."

The vice president told a Walmart truck driver that he and all drivers are considered "critical infrastructure."

Pence used the intercom to tell all employees they''re on the "front lines" of the pandemic. He thanked them for doing a "great job" and for "keeping food on the table for the American people." (AP) IND IND
