"Milk is one of the most requested items at Pennsylvania food banks, but people rarely donate milk because it's perishable," said Dee Lowery, president of the FirstEnergy Foundation. "We're pleased to be able to help fill this need for Pennsylvania families through this unique statewide effort."
The goal of the program this year is to distribute 2 million servings of milk through eight regional food banks across the state.
Feeding Pennsylvania promotes and aids its member food banks in securing food and other resources to reduce hunger and food insecurity in their communities and across Pennsylvania. To donate, please visit http://www.feedingpa.org/support-our-mission/.
