Hiland Dairy is kicking off World Milk Day on June 1st and National Dairy Month in June by partnering with the Kansas Food Bank as one of 15 Feeding America® network food banks across a six-state area. Thanks to the generosity of Hiland Dairy, the Kansas Food Bank received a pallet of shelf-stable milk, which will provide much-needed relief to many of our neighbors facing high costs at the grocery store.
The donation also celebrates Hiland’s 85 years of providing milk and dairy products to American families. Hiland Dairy and its farmer-owners are working hard to produce safe, nutritious dairy and get it to those in need. World Milk Day on June 1st and National Dairy Month in June provide an opportunity to amplify that message.
