Milk is the top nutritious food or beverage product requested by food shelf clients, according to a recent Feeding America survey. However, nearly half of food banks get fewer than 24 gallons of milk donated per week.
To get more dairy products to local households in need, the National Dairy Council recently awarded Second Harvest Heartland a $10,000 grant. Funds will be used to source more milk, cheese, yogurt and other dairy items that we can send to our network of food shelves.

The National Dairy Council has been a partner of Feeding America since 2012.
