The Great American Milk Drive

GAMD Logo Blue-07

 

According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, milk is one of the items most requested by food bank clients, yet there is a nationwide shortage because it is rarely donated. That will soon change, thanks to The Great American Milk Drive, the first-ever national program to help deliver highly desired and nutrient-rich gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most.

Hunger impacts 1 in 6 Americans, including 12.5 million families who do not have access to adequate nourishment to help them reach their full potential. Hunger has no boundaries and is a problem that exists in urban, suburban and rural communities. 

Map the Meal Gap shows how hunger impacts every county in the country. With its network of more than 200 food banks and 61,000 food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters throughout the country, Feeding America helps provide food to families in need – including many in Kansas. 

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. Now, it’s going to be easier for Kansas residents to lend a hand and contribute nutritious milk to food insecure families.

With a simple click of a mouse (www.milklife.com/give) or text message (text “Milk” to 27722), it will now be possible to 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 the Kansas Food Bank.

Don’t forget, the Kansas Food Bank accepts donations of fresh produce.  Is your garden producing this year?  Have too many cucumbers, tomatoes or zucchini?  We accept donations all summer and into the fall of produce.  Our partner agencies always report to us how much their pantry guests enjoy receiving fresh items.  The Kansas Food Bank has made the commitment to offer more fresh, healthy, nutritious produce throughout our network.  Last year we distributed 1.5 million pounds.  So, remember us when your garden gets out of hand, we will put that extra produce to good use!
