Here's an event you can both support local farmers and feed families at the same time.

Grand Union is trying to raise awareness for Hunger Action Month this September by stocking local food pantries with fresh mile. They have teamed up with American Dairy Association North East to raise money with Fill a Glass with Hope®.

Thanks to dairy farmers, agriculture partners and business leaders, this initiative will provide fresh milk to families in need at local food banks across the state. All this is made possible by donations received at Grand Union.

Milk is actually one of the most requested items by families at food banks. Unfortunately, it is also one of the least donated as well.
