That gallon of milk you consider a staple in your refrigerator is missing in our food bank. In fact, milk is one of the items most requested by food bank clients, yet there is a nationwide shortage because it is rarely donated.
This means the 12.5 million families that Feeding America supports – including those right here in our community – do not have access to adequate nourishment to help them reach their full potential.
In fact, the 37 million Americans served annually in the Feeding America network receive the equivalent of less than ONE gallon of milk per person per year.
That has now changed with the launch of The Great American Milk Drive, the first-ever national program to help deliver highly desired and nutrient-rich gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most.
YOU CAN HELP! With a simple click of a mouse (http://www.MilkLife.com/give) or text message (text “Milk” to 27722), you can help get much-needed milk and donate it for as little as $5.00 to a family who does not have regular access to milk. Donations are designated to local food banks by the donor’s billing zip code.
Together, we can help nourish those in need in our community.
