My home runs on milk. We only function with the important ingredients in life, you know… cheese, ice cream, milk, butter. My toddler can’t even get through the morning without a cup of milk. I just can’t picture life without dairy so imagine how shocked I was to find out that it is considered a luxury for some. I had to join California Dairy Families and the Great American Milk Drive to help those in need. In fact, to help those who need nutritious California milk, California’s more than 1,400 dairy farm families have pledged $100,000 in matching milk donations to the Great American Milk Drive – equal to 20,000 gallons or 320,000 servings of milk – through the end of the year. People can donate one gallon of milk for just $5 at www.MilkLife.com/Give. $100,000 of total California milk donations made by the end of the year will be matched by California Dairy Families. Enter your zip code and donations will help your local California food bank.
Real California Milk from real California Dairy Families for real Californians. It is all California love. Did you know milk is one of the most requested nutrition staples at food banks but out of the more than 377 million meals served by California food banks each year, the facilities are only able to provide less than one gallon of milk per person each year?
When you buy dairy products, look for brands made with 100% Real California Milk that feature the Real California Milk Seal or the Real California Cheese Seal. Yes that one up there.
