Hiland Dairy has teamed up with Price Chopper at 500 NE Barry Road Saturday, June 14 from 7am to 4pm to host a Great American Milk Drive Event that will benefit Harvesters—The Community Food Network
We’re asking shoppers to buy an extra gallon of milk while they are shopping on Saturday that can be donated on-site. Both Hiland Dairy and Price Chopper will do a match for each gallon donated during 7am to 4pm on Saturday, June 14.
For many, that gallon of milk that we consider a staple in our refrigerator is missing in Kansas City’s food banks. According to Harvesters’ parent organization, Feeding America®, milk is one of the items most requested by food bank clients, yet there is a nationwide shortage because it is rarely donated
It’s been a challenge for Feeding America to meet the demand for milk due to the lack of donations – canned goods and other non-perishable items are more likely to be donated
There are other ways to donate for those who cannot make it to our on-site events:
With the simple click of a mouse (www.milklife.com/give) or text message (text “Milk” to 27722), anyone can buy much-needed milk and donate it for as little as $5.00 to a family who does not have regular access to milk. By entering your zip code, you can ensure that the milk is delivered from the farm to a local Feeding America food bank in your very own community
