Ingles Markets and WQUT have teamed up with our Tennessee Farm Families to collect fresh milk donations at Ingles Stores around Tri-Cities during the 2019 Randy Davis Memorial Milk Drive.
Milk is one of the items most requested by food bank clients. Americans are generous with canned and dry foods, but often don’t think to donate fresh milk because it’s perishable.
WQUT will be hosting live remotes throughout the milk drive events and Second Harvest staff and volunteers will be on site at stores to load the milk donations on a refrigerated truck and provide information for customers who are interested in learning about the services provided by the food bank. The next event is taking place Saturday, April 20th at the Ingles Store located at 4470 Roan Street in Johnson City. If you are unable to stop by, just click on the Second Harvest logo on the website to donate online.
“Second Harvest is so appreciative of Ingles, Tennessee Dairy Farm Families, and WQUT for the support they have offered through the first annual Randy David Memorial Milk Drive in our region. Fresh milk isn’t always an option for many East Tennesseans and this milk drive makes it possible for the people we serve to have fresh milk in their homes,” said Executive Director, Rhonda Chafin.
All milk collected will be distributed in the eight-county area served by Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee.
