FILL A GLASS WITH HOPE

With 1 in 5 children on average going to bed hungry each night, we are hopeful we can count on you to join us in providing access to fresh, nutritious and delicious milk to hungry families and children throughout Pennsylvania.

How can you help? By joining Fill a Glass with Hope, Pennsylvania’s First Statewide Charitable Fresh Milk Program to supply fresh milk to families in need.

18168727-standardPennsylvania Dairymen’s Association has partnered with Feeding Pennsylvania, Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association, agriculture partners and business leaders to make this vital dairy item accessible to the hungry.

But we need your help. There are many costs to acquiring, handling and distributing milk to the needy Pennsylvanians who seek help at hundreds of community organizations across our 67 counties. With the support of many volunteers and generous donors, we hope to bring fresh milk to the tables of families everywhere!

Milk has long been associated with good health: making bones and teeth stronger, reducing risks of various chronic diseases, aiding in blood clotting and wound healing, maintaining normal blood pressure, building muscle and much more. That’s why we are committed to delivering one of Pennsylvania’s favorite beverages to food bank clients, who otherwise could not profit from milk’s beneficial nutrients.

We hope that you can join us at our special event on January 8, 2016 at the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show where we will publicly launch Pennsylvania’s First Statewide Charitable Fresh Milk Program. Thank you in advance for your consideration of Fill a Glass with Hope!
