The Great American Milk Drive comes to Price Chopper supermarkets this week with a special event planned for today (June 16).
State Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball is visiting the Price Chopper on Altamont Avenue in Schenectady to publicize the milk drive campaign.
At Price Chopper's 135 stores, tear pads for $2 and/or $4 donation are available on the dairy cases adjacent to the milk. Shoppers can bring a tear page to the checkout to make a donation. Donations benefit the Feeding America Food Banks so low-income people can obtain milk when they visit area food banks.
Price Chopper will match all donations made at its stores up to $10,000.
than 22 million children may miss out on milk’s nutrition in the summer
months when schools are closed and they lose access to free or
reduced-price meal programs.
This summer, America’s dairy farmers and milk companies are on a
mission to bring more fresh, nutritious milk to children in need.
