The kids are excited that they have just days left in school, but here’s a sobering statistic, kids on the free and reduced lunch program may go without breakfast and lunch during the summer. It’s why dairy farmers are joining forces with local meal programs to not only feed kids, but make sure they’re full of high quality protein you find in milk and cheese. Twin Cities Live Reporter Kelli Hanson takes us to Second Harvest Heartland where Midwest Dairy Farmers are helping out.
Here’s how you can help! Go to GiveAGallon.com to donate so kids in your community have access to nutritious milk.
