Help Feed a Childhood

For as little as $5, you can donate online and help to ensure that all children have the potential to play, learn and grow.

The Milk Gap

Childhood should be filled with playing, learning and growing. But for many children who face hunger, even basic staples like milk – and the nutrients that help power childhood activities – may be missing. Each year, more than 46 million people — including 12 million children — are served by Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Now, you can help feed a childhood.    

On average, people served by food banks receive the equivalent of less than 1 gallon per person per year.

That’s because while Americans are generous with their food bank donations of canned and dry goods, fresh milk is much harder to donate because it’s perishable. Even though milk is one of the most requested items, it’s difficult for food banks to meet the demand – especially in the summer months and during the winter holidays, when schools are not in session and food banks are often busier.

Thanks to the generosity of donors across the country, The Great American Milk Drive has delivered more than 1 million gallons of milk – that’s more than 16 million servings – to food banks across the country since 2014.

And yet there’s still so much more to do.

Donate Online or In-store to Help Put Milk on the Table for Local Kids and Families in Need

Milk’s nutrition helps provide children with the fuel they need to achieve their full potential. Now, you can help get nutrient-rich milk to kids and families in your community who struggle with food insecurity. Milk is a nutrient powerhouse – providing 9 essential nutrients, including 8 grams of high-quality protein per serving – and is the top food source of three of the nutrients most likely to be missing from kids’ diets: calcium, vitamin D and potassium. 

Your online donation of as little as $5 will deliver milk to the Feeding America food bank that serves your local community when you enter your ZIP code. Make an online donation now.
