With support from our New England Dairy Farmers, we have been spending September working with a number of new partners to help generate milk donations for local food banks. Some of these partnerships include:
- Edible Publications: RI, MA and VT editions of Edible will donate to the milk drive as part of their fall subscription drive. Please look for the ad in the fall issues of Edible Cape Cod, Edible South Shore, Edible Pioneer Valley, Edible Berkshires, Edible Rhody, and Edible Green Mountains Vermont.
- MixFest: We also worked with MixFest and offered concert attendees a way to donate to the milk drive for a chance to go backstage during MixFest earlier this month.
- Boston Local Food Festival and Wicked Good Cookies: We also joined forces with Wicked Good Cookies and sought support for the milk drive at the Boston Local Food Festival.
- Adams Hometown Market: We are working with Adams Hometown Market on a checkout program where shoppers can opt in to donate $1, $3 or $5 to The Great American Milk Drive. Sampling events will also be held in October and November with Guida’s milk.
