Tennessee Dairy Producers Association
Tennessee Dairy Producers Association (TDPA) acknowledges the commitment by USDA to purchase $50 million dollars of fluid milk.
Under authorization from Section 32 regulations , USDA through their Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) will purchase milk representing 12-15 million gallons of skim, 1%, 2% and Whole milk to be distributed through food programs and food banks.
TDPA is pleased that USDA is now including fluid milk as part of its Emergency Food Assistance Program. The nutritional benefits of milk, rich in protein, essential vitamins and minerals, make up a valuable part of the diets of our young and old alike.
Tennesseans have been supporting such efforts for several years through the Randy Davis Great American Milk Drive facilitated by Ingles Markets and other Food Chains in East Tennessee through four Local Food Banks meeting the needs of over 1 million individuals.
