This past year, Pennsylvania dairy farmers stepped up in a big way to feed our neighbors in need through milk drives and donations. They are proud to produce wholesome, nutritious and delicious milk for you. This June and every month, you can fuel your family and support our farmers by choosing Pennsylvania dairy. Look for the PA Preferred logo or plant code 42 at your local grocery store! #ChoosePADairy
We are Your Dairy Farmers Stronger Together
In 2020, we launched the campaign, “We Are Your Dairy Farmers: Stronger Together, Buy Local, Choose PA Dairy,” to encourage families to support their local farm families who work hard daily to produce fresh, local milk and dairy products to feed families. During COVID-19, milk was in high demand at grocery stores, but was suspended in other supply chain locations due to business, school and government shutdowns.

Goodness That Matters: For a Stronger Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania dairy: it’s goodness that matters for good nutrition, better health, stronger farm families, and a strong economy. The commonwealth’s dairy industry fuels all of this by providing an abundant supply of fresh, wholesome milk that’s rich in the nine essential nutrients for good health and by supporting our state’s economy to the tune of $14.7 billion annually and over 52,000 jobs.
Thanks to the hard work of Pennsylvania’s 6,500 dairy farm families, local milk is available year-round. Pennsylvania milk is available locally and globally and is made into butter, ice cream, cheese, yogurt and other dairy products or ingredients that are used in products like chocolate, snack foods and baked goods. Dairy farmers in the state are stewards of the land and natural resources, they take good care of their cows, provide jobs and economic revenue.

We're Getting Milk to Those Who Need It
We’ve helped launch the first statewide charitable fresh milk distribution program in the U.S. with Feeding Pennsylvania and American Dairy Association North East. Fill a Glass with Hope® now provides well over three million servings of milk to clients of Feeding Pennsylvania’s statewide member food banks.
Did you know 1 in 5 kids in PA are hungry? Together, we can Fill a Glass with Hope so no one goes without fresh milk. $1 donated equals 6 servings of milk.
