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 – are missing. More than 46 million Americans — including 12 million children — rely on Feeding America food bank donations each year. Now, you can help feed a childhood.
Milk is one of the most-requested, yet least-donated items.
On average, clients receive the equivalent of less than 1 gallon per person per year. That’s because while Americans are generous with canned and dry goods, many don’t think to donate milk because it’s perishable. Your small donation will deliver a gallon of milk to a family in need in your local community, helping to ensure that all children have the potential to play, learn and grow.
In partnership with Feeding America — the largest hunger relief and food rescue organization in the United States — The Great American Milk Drive turns your online donations into gallons of milk for families in your local community. Thanks to the generosity of donors across the country, more than 1 million gallons of milk have been delivered to families across the country through The Great American Milk Drive food bank donations.
And yet there’s still so much more to do.
