Milk - it is easily Leighton's favorite thing to drink everyday. She wakes up in the morning and wants her sippy cup of milk. She wakes up from her nap and wants another cup of milk. And at dinner before bedtime, you guessed it, she wants her cup of milk. This girl loves her milk! Don't even think about walking in her room in the morning without her cup of milk, or she will definitely put you in your place.
Milk is such a nutritious drink for your children, and most children love it too. Milk has 9 essential nutrients including 8 grams of natural and high-quality protein per 8 ounce serving. This month is National Dairy Month, and it's the perfect time to learn why it's so important to help Feeding America and The Great American Milk Drive deliver nutrient-milk to children. The Great American Milk Drive is a collaborative effort between Feeding America, America's dairy farmers and milk companies, and it turns online donations into gallons of milk for families in local communities. The Great American Milk drive helps to ensure that all children have the potential to play, learn and grow.
The National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program don't reach children during the summer months, so during times like this, food banks play an even more critical role in helping children access nutritious foods when class isn't in session. In the summer, kids are running, hiking, swimming and everything else. Milk is the perfect drink to help fuel their summer. You can help this summer with just a small donation. One as little as only $5 can deliver a nutrient-rich gallon of fresh milk to children who need it most. You can support the Great American Milk Drive to deliver milk to the Feeding America food bank that serves your community when you enter you zip code here. You can learn more about the Great America Milk drive and donate to Milk Life here.
