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 – 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 nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization — The Great American Milk Drive turns your online donations into gallons of milk for families in your local community. To date, more than 700,000 gallons — that’s over 11 million servings— 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.

Donate Online or In-store to Put Milk on the Table for Local Families

We need your help to get milk to more families struggling in the nutrition gap. Hungry children and families in your community are missing out on the essential nutrients supplied by milk because many food bank donations do not include milk.
