Did you know milk is rarely donated to food banks? Therefore it is in short supply when families come to receive assistance. Here is an inforgraphic that spells out the need and the actual supply.
Feeding America and the Great American Milk Drive help raise awareness and the availability of milk in food banks. The drive goes through the month of September, and the winning state will receive a bonus 5,000 gallon milk donation. The milk will be distributed evenly across the food banks in that state.
Don’t worry – the milk won’t go bad! The state will receive manufacturer’s coupons that they can redeem as they need the milk. That way, families always receive fresh gallons!
The winning state will be the one with the highest donations. You can help your state win by
~Donating online – your billing zip code determine that your state receives the credit
~Donating at participating stores
Even if your state doesn’t win the grand prize, the money you donate will go toward providing milk for your state’s food banks. All donations are tax deductible.
Have you seen the drive publicized at your local stores?
