Wednesday, Penn State agriculture students Caroline Arrowsmith of Hillacres Jerseys in Peach Bottom, Pa., Allie Snider of Snider Homestead Farm in New Enterprise, Pa., and Pennsylvania Dairy Princess Gabrielle Swavely, joined ADA North East and several local community groups to help distribute milk and dairy foods to local families in the State College, Pa., area. Nearly 1,300 food boxes, each containing one gallon of milk, along with an assortment of dairy foods, produce and meat were distributed through the Farmers to Families Food Box program with USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) government-funded grants.
