Kroger invites shoppers to support milk drive for needy Michigan families
MICHIGAN — Each year, Michigan residents who rely on food banks for meals receive one gallon of milk compared to the 68 gallons recommended by the USDA. Hoping to increase that amount, The Kroger Co. of Michigan and United Dairy Industry of Michigan (UDIM) are sponsoring the “Great American Milk Drive,” August 2 -30. During that time, Kroger shoppers can purchase $1, $3 and $5-dollar icons at registers in all 125 Michigan Kroger stores. All funds collected will benefit local food banks and food rescue organizations, which will purchase Kroger’s 100 percent Michigan milk for distribution to hungry individuals and families. Kroger and UDIM will multiply the funds raised and the gallons of milk provided, with each matching contribution up to $20,000. Recipients include the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan where milk is one of the most requested items, according to Bill Kerr, president. – R.S.
