Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association to roll out signature blue and white milkshakes at Penn State Home Football Games in September

State College, PA — The American Dairy Association North East (ADANE) and Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association announced today they have entered into a sponsorship agreement for the first time with Penn State Football to promote their innovative partnership with Feeding Pennsylvania called Fill a Glass with Hope®, a charitable campaign that raises funds so that Feeding PA’s member food banks can purchase milk directly from their local dairies, at a reduced price, and distribute it to families facing hunger.

“One in five Pennsylvania children face hunger every day, which is enough to fill Beaver Stadium five times,” states Feeding Pennsylvaniaexecutive director Jane Clements-Smith. “This sponsorship is a great opportunity to introduce the Fill a Glass with Hope® program to tens of thousands of Penn State Football fans, and invite them to help our neighbors in need.”

It’s Milkshake Time!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….milkshake time! The annual PA Farm Show is here, and along with it, our delicious milkshakes.

We’re celebrating 65 years of serving shakes and over $840,000 raised for the Fill a Glass with Hope®️ campaign. That’s more than 7 million servings of milk.

With your help, we can do more. Snap a photo with your milkshake and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag it with #Shakes4Hope18, and we’ll donate $1 toFill a Glass with Hope®️. We’ll also pick one photo at random each day to win a free t-shirt!

Show us your milkshake love and you’ll be helping a neighbor in need!
