Milk is one of the most requested and least donated items at food banks. On average, people served by food banks receive the equivalent of less than 1 gallon per person per year.
Milk is a luxury item. Our families are always excited when we can offer milk.
Milk is a nutrient powerhouse – providing 9 essential nutrients, including 8 grams of high-quality protein per serving – and is the top food source of three of the nutrients most likely to be missing from kids’ diets: calcium, vitamin D and potassium. You can help get nutrient-rich milk to kids and families in our community who struggle with food insecurity.
Your online donation of as little as $5 to The Great American Milk Drive will deliver milk to local food banks.
Milk is in many Americans’ refrigerators. When people need more, they pick up a gallon at the grocery store. Watch what happens when shoppers discover what missing milk really means.
