FBI agent reveals how the agency's massive fraud investigation began in Feeding Our Future trial

An FBI agent described Wednesday how the agency's massive meal fraud investigation unfolded, saying that investigators quickly saw red flags at food-distribution sites tied to seven defendants on trial this week.

On the third day of the high-profile trial, FBI Special Agent Jared Kary testified about the work investigators did to uncover the Feeding Our Future fraud scheme, which has accused dozens of people of stealing federal money meant to feed low-income kids.

Kary said he and his team scoured a paper trail of bank records, contracts and emails, interviewed witnesses and visited at least one desolate site in 2021 that claimed to serve thousands of kids at a time.
