Dairy Farmers, Promoters Rally to Distribute Milk to Families in Western Pennsylvania
Washington County Dairy Princess Erica Teagarden helped distribute 1,000 gallons of milk to families at a milk drive today, in Washington, Pa. Families in another Pittsburgh suburb, Ambridge, Pa., received 1,500 gallons of milk today at an additional milk distribution event. 

ADA North East worked with processors, USDA-approved vendors and community partners who purchase the milk from Schneider’s Dairy with government-funded grants from Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) to help food insecure families affected by the pandemic.

“I’m so glad I was able to experience helping people in my own community, and to know that so many in need will be getting all the nutritional benefits of milk,” said Teagarden.
