From Washington to Kansas, companies are providing food banks and shelters with an uncommon donation – fresh dairy.
According to Capital Press, dairy delivery company Smith Brothers Farmers has partnered with Dairy Farmers of Washington to donate thousands of gallons of milk to a local nonprofit food distribution agency.
The company plans to donate a quart of milk to Food Lifeline for every quart of Egg Nog sold before Dec. 13.
“We believe that everyone deserves fresh milk,” Dustin Highland, chief operation officer of Smith Brothers Farms, said. “This partnership is great opportunity to provide fresh dairy to those in need
Dairy is also flowing into Kansas food banks. Last week, The Wichita (Kan.) Eagle reported Land O’Lakes announced it will donate 20,000 pounds of butter and sliced American cheese to the Kansas Food Bank.
““This food is going to go a long way in helping people,” said Brian Walker, the Food Bank director.
