Welcome to the 4th Annual Great American Milk Drive! We are so thrilled you’re here to learn more about how you can help fuel a future with us!
Why support this initiative?
The Great American Milk Drive is focused on “fundraising” milk and bringing awareness to the HACAP Food Reservoir through a partnership between the Cedar Rapids and Marion Hy-Vee Stores and DairyPure Land O’Lakes. The 2018 Milk Drive will take place March 1-30, with a 50,000 gallon goal to better serve those in need of substantial nutrition in our community through HACAP and the Feed America initiative.
Why “fundraise” for milk?
- Currently 0 (zero) gallons of milk are donated to HACAP on a weekly basis.
- Yet, 64 Linn County partner agencies/programs are eligible to receive donated milk.
- In Linn County, the food insecurity rate is 12.1% - that translates to 25,060 people.
- 1 in 7 children go to bed hungry. Milk is an essential component of a child’s diet. You can help by donating a gallon or 10 today!
