The Epoch Times reports business entrepreneur and philanthropist Leonard Stern has launched a program to distribute free milk to New York City’s families in need.

The Milk From the Heart Program, part of the Home for the Homeless organization which Stern founded 20 years ago, will originate in Manhattan before expanding to the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.

Stern is the founder and chairman of the Hartz Mountain Corporation who, according to Forbes magazine, has a net worth of $3.6 million. Through his work with New York City charities Stern found families in his program did not have milk in their diets. The Milk From the Heart campaign reaches a new group of homeless and low-income families who haven’t previously received help from Stern’s other programs.

The program will purchase milk directly from the dairy.
