Dairy farmers are an essential part of our New England community. In addition to providing us with local and nutritious dairy products, farmers are supporting school nutrition programs and youth wellness. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, they were ready to support our neighbors in need.
According to Feeding America, the nation’s network of food banks, more than 44 million people in the US face hunger and risk missing out on essential nutrients.
Purchasing and donating milk and nutritious dairy products helps to feed individuals and families while also supporting dairy farmers from our region.
Dairy farmers, processors, schools, food banks, and other partners will continue to work together to help ensure nutritious foods – like milk and dairy – are available to those facing food insecurity.
