The Great American Milk Drive

Have you heard about The Great American Milk Drive? This amazing program is a collaborative effort between Feeding America, America’s dairy farmers and milk companies. They turn online donations into gallons of milk for families in need, in local communities all across the country.

This holiday season, The Great American Milk Drive will deliver it’s 1 millionth, yes, that’s ONE MILLIONTH gallon of milk to Feeding America and its nationwide food bank network. How amazing is that?! One million is a big number, but there’s more work to do!

Why is it important?

Did you know for kids 9 years of age and older, the Dietary Guidelines recommends they get three servings of low fat or fat free milk and milk products every day? They also recommend children ages 4 to 8 get half of that. Milk is naturally nutrient-rich and powers potential, for those with access to it. This is why The Great American Milk Drive is so important, to give families who otherwise go without, access to milk to help ensure that kids have the potential to play, learn and grow.
