The Great American Milk Drive Kicks-Off in Iowa

By Heather Hubbs

Governor Branstad has named June ‘National Dairy month’ in Iowa and announced a challenge for Iowans. The governor is teaming up with food bank leaders across the state to ask people to donate to the Great American Milk Drive. According to Feeding America, milk is one of the most requested items by food bank clients, but is rarely given out due to a lack of donations. The Great American Milk Drive encourages people to make cash donations which then allows food banks to provide people in need with coupons to go buy milk at their local grocery stores. To ensure the dollars you give stay local, simply input your zip code when you donate. The coupons can only be used for milk, no other products. Food banks ask that you give cash and do not donate any gallons of milk due to food safety concerns. To donate to click here.
