The Department of Agriculture provides an array of subsidies for farmers and imposes extensive regulations on agricultural markets. It operates the food stamp and school lunch programs, and it administers numerous subsidy programs for rural parts of the nation. The Forest Service is also within the Department of Agriculture.

The department spent around $150 billion in 2013, or almost $1,300 for every US household. It operates about 240 subsidy programs and employs 93,000 workers in about 7,000 offices across the country.
