The Great American Milk Drive
Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger, including 12.5 million families?
Did you know that milk is one of the most requested, but least donated foods in America’s food banks?
America’s dairy farmers decided to do something about the lack of milk available to our country’s most vulnerable by creating The Great American Milk Drive. This ongoing project aims to put milk on the tables of more families by making it easy for YOU to donate milk to your local food bank.
Since food banks can’t take donations of perishable items from the public, The Great American Milk Drive allows you to donate money to your local food bank to be used for milk. When you donate, the dollars are sent to the food bank in your zip code in the form of coupons for milk. Then, clients can use those coupons at the local grocery or convenience store to buy the milk of their choice.
