Generosity by the Gallons for Dean Foods

January 3, 2013 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

As one of our biggest supporters, Dean Foods is always helping us fight hunger in big and meaningful ways. But during the holiday season when people's budgets are stretched tighter than normal, their donation of 1,500 gallons of fresh milk is making an even bigger impact on children, families and seniors in need.

For the third year in a row, Dean Foods is donating 1,500 gallons of milk to Second Harvest Heartland in lieu of giving holiday gifts to their top retail and foodservice customers. This genuine display of goodwill during a difficult time for so many people is heartwarming and inspiring, not only to us, but to those in our community.

And more importantly, Dean Foods knows that the need for food doesn’t subside when the holidays are over. Each year, they donate over 600,000 pounds of milk to local food shelves. In 2010, they were even awarded the Hunger Hero Award in the food donor category for making a significant impact on those who are hungry in our community.

Sincere thanks to Dean Foods—your gift will help deliver not just food, but hope, for those in need in our community.
