Kicking Off Dairy Month with the Great American Milk Drive!

Did you know, the easiest way to upgrade the nutrition in any meal is to add a glass of milk? We are partnering with Feeding America to ensure children in our communities can enjoy the cool benefits of milk all summer!

From June 1-30, we will join The Great American Milk Drive Promotion, as part of a national campaign, to help families served by Feeding America food banks! Summer is about fun and freedom – and to most kids, it means months filled with playing in the sun, swimming at the lake or baseball in the park. However, more than 22 million children lose access to free or reduced-price meal programs when school lets out.  For many children in need, even basic staples like milk – and the nutrients like protein that help power the simple joys of summer – are missing. Thank you for helping get milk to those who may miss it the most.

 

We are making it super-easy – you can participate with either a $1 or $5 donation at checkout. Corporately, we’ll match all donations, up to $10,000! Then we will turn your donation into gallons of milk for children in need right in your community. In 2016, our generous customers helped us bring $35,000 worth of milk donations to food banks in all 6 of the states we serve. Join us, and feed a childhood with wholesome, local milk!
