Get Involved in the Great All American Milk Drive

This June, Tennessee 4-H members will have the opportunity to become ambassadors for The Great American Milk Drive, the first-ever national program to help deliver highly desired and nutrient-rich gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most. This leadership and service learning opportunity will give all 4-H members in Tennessee the opportunity to make an impact in their own communities! More than 1.1 million people right here in Tennessee - including nearly 400,000 children - are food insecure. And while one of the most requested food items is milk, on average, food banks are only able to provide the equivalent of less than one gallon of milk per person per year.

The focus of the June Dairy Month program with The Great American Milk Drive is "Young People Helping Young People" - as 22 million kids who rely on free or reduced-price in-school meal programs miss out on regular access to nutrient-rich milk during the summer months. Young people in each of the three regions should drive donations to their own unique URL, so we can track to see which region raises the most donations! All donations will go directly towards helping families in need right in their own community - and the region that raises the most will have their donations matched, up to 1,000 gallons!

If you are in the 4-H Western Region, drive all donations
If you are in the 4-H Central Region, drive all donations
If you are in the 4-H Eastern Region, drive all donations to:
