Milk is one of the most-requested, yet least-donated items.
Childhood should be filled with playing, learning and growing. But for many children who face hunger, even basic staples like milk – and the nutrients that help power childhood activities – are missing. More than 46 million Americans — including 12 million children — rely on Feeding America food bank donations each year.
Donate to The Great American Milk Drive:
Join Feeding America® and your local dairy farmers in support of The Great American Milk Drive today.
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.
Dairy farmers and the nation’s milk companies are partnering with Feeding America on The Great American Milk Drive, a national campaign to secure highly desired gallons of nutrient-rich milk for millions of hungry families. With a small donation, you can help get fresh, nutritious milk to families in need in your community.
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.
For every contribution of $5, one half-gallon of milk or more based on local markets will be secured and delivered by Feeding America® on behalf of its national network of food banks. ©2016 America’s Milk Companies®.
