To help kids make the connection to where milk and dairy foods come from, dairy farmer Jenna Lenhart of Thurmont, Md., checked in live from the farm during ADA North East’s virtual Fuel Up to Play 60 fall kickoff event with the Baltimore Ravens. She was joined by dairy advocate and current Ravens punter Sam Koch and former Ravens wide receiver Qadry Ismail to explain that dairy is the “fuel” in Fuel Up to Play 60. Together they also stressed the importance of physical activity, and Jenna did a few curls with the students using two 10-pound feed buckets.
“I enjoyed being able to share right from our barn the role dairy farmers play in bringing nutritious dairy products to the students and to their families.” – Jenna Lenhart
