Great American Milk Drive Supports Food Banks

Feeding America is America's leading domestic hunger relief organization with the mission to feed hungry Americans through a network of member food banks and engage our nation in the fight to end hunger.  Hunger is a reality for more than 49 million Americans. Through partnerships with public and private organizations and businesses , millions of meals are secured on behalf of local food banks to provide hunger relief.

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

More information about the Great American Milk Drive can also be found at Midwest Dairy.
