Mid-South Food Bank Begins Milk2MyPlate

The Dairy Alliance awarded Mid-South Food Bank a $35,000 Milk2MyPlate grant for the purchase of 24 commercial refrigerators, increasing the agency's capacity to access milk for distribution to their clients across Northern Mississippi and Western Tennessee. Based in Memphis, TN, Mid-South services 30 counties in the southeast region, with 17.8% of the population being food insecure, including 110,000 children. The milk for the initiative will come from Prairie Farms.
