Dairy farmers and dairy processors launched The Great American Milk Drive this week in partnership with Feeding America to bring awareness about the scarcity of milk for food banks and to work for a goal of providing 2 million gallons of milk to food banks.
Hunger is a very real problem in America. It's a fact that 1 in 6 Americans suffer hunger.
I'm joining in the fight against hunger by participating in the Milk Drive and by other opportunities provided by partnerships with food companies at Outnumber Hunger. Involvement in these activities will help Feeding America to:
- ensure no child is at risk of hunger
- provide well stocked food banks to help the needy
- improve families have access to food
- help people in hard times
