Families Across the Region Get Access to Dairy Products, Meals During Summer

The 2019 series of Summer Meals program continues to roll through the ADA North East territory with stops in Delaware, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. We partner with local food distribution organizations to help get nutritious foods, including dairy, to kids during summer break. Our NFL partners also participate, reminding kids about the Fuel Up to Play 60 message of eating healthy and staying active.
