BENEFITING: NORTH HELPLINE

Tom Kozaczynski

THE STORY:

Milk and other calcium-rich foods have always been a must-have in childrens diets. A report released by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reinforces that eating calcium-rich foods like milk during childhood years helps build strong bones and may prevent the risk of fractures and osteoporosis later in life.

Over the last twelve months, North Helpline Food Bank has seen a 34% increase in demand for our services. This surge in need has made it increasingly difficult to provide a well balanced food supply to all the hungry families in our community. In particular, milk and dairy products are in scarce supply.

By partnering with Medosweet Farms in Kent, WA, North Helpline will be able to purchase milk at wholesale prices. Each month, North Helpline will purchase 800 half-gallon cartons at a price of about $1.39 each. This price is far below what we would pay at other suppliers, and will allow us to provide fresh milk to the close to 800 families we serve each week.
