Milk is one of the most requested items by food books but rarely donated. Many individuals and families are missing nutrient-rich milk from their daily diets. For people who utilize a food pantry, they receive on average, a gallon of milk per year. You can help provide milk to those in need in your community by donating online. The Great American Milk Drive tracks your zip code- keeping your donation local! Donations are then turned into milk coupons and distributed to those in need.
