Although this post is sponsored by The Great American Milk Drive, all opinions and ideas are 100% my own.
If there is one food staple in our home, it’s easily milk. Between my husband and my five year old, with a few bowls of cereal here and there eaten by myself, we can easily consume 4-6 gallons of milk in a two week period. No joke. If given the choice between water and milk, Luke will gladly choose milk 100% of the time. In fact, since getting the basketball hoop for our front driveway, he’ll come in to get a big glass of milk to cool off. He likes to claim that the milk is what’s making him so big so fast.
What is so sad to me is that so many families across our country don’t have the ability or access to something as simple as milk on a regular basis; right now, 37 million Americans served annually by the Feeding America network receive the equivalent of less than one gallon of milk per person per year. With the launch of The Great American Milk Drive today, Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, will be the first nationwide program designed to encourage consumers to donate nutrient-rich milk to hungry families.
The Great American Milk Drive is made possible by the nation’s dairy farmers and milk companies and will make it easy for people to buy milk online at www.milklife.com/give (or text to a special code) and donate it to a food pantry in their zip code for as little as $5 at a time. Every single dollar collected will go to purchasing and delivering milk to hungry families through the Feeding America network with the goal to deliver two million gallons of milk to food banks across the country. It doesn’t get better than that, right?
