ADA North East helped coordinate the logistics and distribution of more than 175,000 gallons of milk donated by DFA during the past two months. The last of these donations will take place this week in Delaware and in Philadelphia, Pa., with a few additional deliveries for the Salvation Army in Syracuse.
ADA North East will turn our efforts to support dairy farmers by working with dairy processors and manufacturers to move product through USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) and the Nourish New York programs.
