Ellie Wilson, MS, RDN Senior Nutritionist
Price Chopper and Market 32 are again partnering with Garelick Farms, American Dairy Association and Dairy Council, New England Dairy Council, Feeding America and regional food banks to promote the Great American Milk Drive. From June 1st through June 30th, you can help us bring delicious, nutritious milk to families and individuals in need in your community!
It is so easy to make a difference – donate $1 or $5 at the register each time you check out – we will match all donations up to $10,000! Milk is a great way to make any meal or snack more nutritious, and is also easy and familiar – even picky kids like milk! The Great American Milk Drive helps us ensure children get easy access to milk over the summer and other times of the year – an easy, effective way to provide crucial nutrients in a natural, wholesome and familiar food. Win Win!!
In New York, Pennsylvania and New England, we have the added benefit of promoting local food when we promote milk – it is only 48 hours from cow to cup. Local dairy farmers work hard to bring great quality and nutrition to the table, especially for our most vulnerable individuals. Join us and make this year’s Great American Milk Drive the best year yet!
