Outpost Natural Foods Launches “Milk Money” Program
Co-op’s in-store voucher program provides nutritious milk for Hunger Task Force pantry network
Milwaukee (July 19, 2016) – Outpost Natural Foods has launched Milk Money, a pay-it-forward program providing nutritious and wholesome milk to local families. Outpost shoppers can purchase a voucher for a gallon of milk at the check-out register at any local Outpost location. These vouchers are delivered to Hunger Task Force and distributed to local food pantries nearest to each Outpost store location.
“Hunger is a real issue for so many in our community. Outpost is pleased to be teaming up with our friends at Hunger Task Force to provide greater access to fresh, healthy, local food like dairy milk,” says Margaret Mittelstadt, Community Relations Director for Outpost Natural Foods.
“Outpost Natural Foods is a long-standing partner of Hunger Task Force, and Milk Money is an awesome new program that’s going to provide local families and kids with that nutritious staple,” says Sherrie Tussler, Executive Director of Hunger Task Force.
Sassy Cow Creamery will also be matching Milk Money donations in July and August, up to 200 gallons per month.
