To date, ADA North East has provided 508 cooler bags to 37 different school districts in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and New York, to help distribute perishable items like milk and dairy products to out-of-school students. We have also provided some schools with paper and plastic bags for transporting grab and go meals, in addition to hand sanitizers and masks to support safe handling practices.
The 1,800 school districts in our region still receive the weekly e-blast ADA North East sends to offer resources related to training webinars, grant opportunities, self-care tips, and others.
About American Dairy Association North East
