God’s Pantry Milk Distribution Greatly Expanded Since Milk2MyPlate

In 2018, God’s Pantry Food Bank partnered with The Dairy Alliance to launch a Milk2MyPlate pilot program, originally planning to move 60 gallons of milk per week in Fayette County. By 2019, however, the program provided approximately 5,500 gallons of milk per week across the 50 counties served by God's Pantry, representing 5.9% of the food bank's total distribution volume that year.

Though Milk2MyPlate has grown through an expanded governmental milk distribution and private relationships, The Dairy Alliance grant has allowed an increase in overall volume. Now, God's Pantry allows partner agencies to receive as much milk as they can safely handle without fees or the need to order ahead, ensuring the milk clients receive is always fresh and distributed quickly and efficiently.
