Santa’s Milk Drive: Join Us!
Our country’s food pantries have a crucial need for more milk. According to Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, milk is one of the items most requested by food bank clients, yet it is rarely donated. Missing out on milk, means missing out on high-quality protein and other key nutrients.
In the holiday spirit, the Dairy Farmers of Utah have teamed up with local food blogger, Heidi Larsen of FoodieCrush, Winder Farms, and Smith’s to help raise awareness of food banks’ need for milk.
Heidi Larsen’s says, “Everyone deserves milk with their Santa Cookies, and all year long!” Heidi will be at the event with her daughter helping to raise awareness and “teaching my daughter and her friends the true lessons of the season”. She has highlighted the event on her blog and encouraged other food bloggers to do the same.
“Winder Farms has a long-standing commitment to giving, and we are thrilled to be part of the Great American Milk Drive this holiday season,” says Melanie Robinson, Vice President of Marketing for Winder Farms. Winder Farms will be supporting the event with:
- A refrigerated truck to accept donations
- 50 gallon milk match
- Egg Nog samples on site
Smith’s has been a partner in the Great American Milk Drive and again supports food bank efforts this Holiday Season. In conjunction with the Grand Opening events of Smith’s Marketplace in West Jordan (5600W 7800S), Santa’s Milk Drive will be an in-store event and all donations will be taken to the Utah Food Bank immediately following the event.
Please Join Us!
WHEN: Saturday, December 6th 1:00pm-4:00pm OR online: santasmilkdrive.com
