Dairy Farmers to Give Away Free Milk in Boston
By Ally Donnelly and Jim Haddadin
Dairy farmers across the country have been forced to dump milk they can’t sell into their fields – an awful waste of their hard work, and of valuable food.
But a new initiative called Farmers Feeding Families will soon get that surplus milk into the hands of local families that need it most.
A national cooperative that represents farms in Massachusetts will donate some 8,600 gallons of milk at an event Thursday at Boston College High School.
