Join us for FREE milkshakes on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the PA State Capitol Senate side lawn. We will be celebrating June Dairy Month by serving up our famous milkshakes. Attendees can also meet a baby calf and get their photo taken with her! Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding, Miss Pennsylvania Kayla Repasky and Pennsylvania Dairy Royalty will also be at the event to highlight the importance of dairy farms in the state.
Milk is the Commonwealth’s Official Beverage and every June, dairy farmers across the state gather to celebrate this delicious and nutritious beverage. Did you know that the Pennsylvania dairy industry contributes approximately $15 billion annually to the state economy? Help us say thank you to the state’s dairy farmers by joining us on June 4!
Our annual Farm Show in June event also supports Feeding PA’s Fill A Glass With Hope™️ Program. We encourage those who join us to make a donation to help provide fresh milk to statewide member food banks. Did you know 1 in 6 kids in Pennsylvania are hungry? Together, we can Fill a Glass with Hope™️ so no one goes without fresh milk; on average $1 donated equals 8 servings of milk.
Fill a Glass with Hope™️ is the first statewide charitable fresh milk distribution program in the U.S. The program is supported by partners: Feeding PA, the PA Dairymen’s Association, American Dairy Association North East, agriculture partners, and state business leaders. FAGWH brings fresh milk to Pennsylvania families in need through Feeding Pennsylvania’s network of food banks and now provides millions of servings of milk to clients of Feeding Pennsylvania’s statewide member food banks.
