American Dairy Association North East is helping Dairy Farmers of America distribute its milk donations to thousands of families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last Friday, Philadelphia families received 4,800 gallons of whole and 2% milk through its Share Food Program that distributes food through the city’s network of food banks. Another load is planned for delivery tomorrow. In addition, 4,300 gallons were made available to families in Corinth, New York, through ADA North East’s work with the Corinth School District and the Saratoga County Health Department.
Yesterday, food rescue facilities City Harvest in Queens, N.Y., and Rolling Harvest in Highstown, N.J., each received 4,860 gallons of milk to distribute to local families. The Fayette Food Bank in Republic, Pa., also received 4,860 gallons today.
ADA North East will continue to facilitate additional donations from DFA throughout our region during the quarantine.
