Dairy farmer and ADA North East board member Dina Zug of Mifflintown, Pa., helped kick off the 2022 Fill a Glass with Hope® campaign at the Pennsylvania Farm Show that has raised $180,000 in donations to feed Pennsylvania’s food-insecure families. To-date, the campaign has provided more than 27 million servings of fresh milk to nourish those in need.

Zug joined representatives from Feeding Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association, along with Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding, former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and the Pennsylvania Dairy Princess and Alternates for the announcement.

Fill a Glass with Hope was initiated by Pennsylvania dairy farmers who wanted to ensure families in need had access to fresh, nutritious milk to feed their families. A partnership was formed between ADA North East, Feeding Pennsylvania’s nine-member food banks and the PA Dairymen’s Association.

“I’m proud to represent my fellow dairy farmers to highlight the importance of Fill a Glass with Hope,” said Zug. “This initiative showcases our dedication to producing wholesome, nutritious milk, and also for ensuring its accessibility to families in our communities throughout the state.”
