Childhood should be filled with playing, learning and growing. But for many children who face hunger, even basic staples like milk are missing. Milk is one of the most requested, but least donated items. Kids are missing out on the essential nutrients, including high-quality protein that milk provides.
During June Dairy Month, you can help provide milk to our neighbors when you donate to the Great American Milk Drive at Price Chopper locations throughout Vermont. Price Chopper will match the donation up to $10,000!
Background: On average, clients receive the equivalent of less than 1 gallon per person per year. That’s because while Americans are generous with canned and dry goods, many don’t think to donate milk because it’s perishable. Your small donation will deliver a gallon of milk to a family in need in your local community, helping to ensure that all children have the potential to play, learn and grow.
In partnership with Feeding America — the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization — The Great American Milk Drive turns your online donations into gallons of milk for families in your local community. To date, more than 700,000 gallons — that’s over 12 million servings— of milk have been delivered to families across the country through The Great American Milk Drive food bank donations.
