Feeding America And The Great American Milk Drive Partner To Provide More Milk To Children And Families For National Dairy Month

During National Dairy Month in June – and all summer long – Feeding America(R), in partnership with America’s dairy farmers and milk companies, is committed to helping provide more fresh milk to ensure nutrients aren’t missing from the summer diets of children and families in need across the country.

Since milk is rarely donated, the nationwide Feeding America network of food banks are only able to provide the average equivalent of less than one gallon of milk per person per year. And yet, according to a survey of Feeding America food banks, milk is one of the most requested items among families and individuals served. The challenge to provide fresh milk becomes increasingly difficult for food banks during summer months when demand for charitable support increases.
