Making Investments in the Lives of Kids!
At Gleaners, milk is one of the most requested items yet the least donated. On average nationally, food banks are only able to provide the equivalent of one gallon of milk per person per year.
The USDA MyPlate recommendation is 3 servings of dairy per day per child, but many children lack access to these servings. In an effort to address the milk gap, with the help of our generous partners, United Dairy Industry of Michigan and Michigan Milk Producers Association, we were able to distribute over 130,000 gallons of fresh Michigan milk last year to help nourish local families.
USDA MyPlate recommendation is 3 servings of dairy per day per child, but many children are unable to get these servings. Clearly we need to secure more milk to give hungry kids and families in southeast Michigan. We call this initiative MILK – Making Investments in the Lives of Kids.
But we still need more milk to meet the demand and ensure children in our community have the milk they need to grow up strong. Your generous gift of $25, $50 or more today will help us continue to supply food-insecure children and their families with the milk that is so important to child nutrition.
