   Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC has received the first of many deliveries of fresh milk coming to the organization through the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Emergency Food Assistance Program in October and through March 2019.

The fresh milk will be available to families and individuals facing food insecurity through Second Harvest’s partner agency network spanning 18 counties, as well as through free milk giveaway events being planned and organized by Second Harvest.

Second Harvest will be posting details about special milk giveaway events on its Facebook page.  Individuals and families will have to meet income guidelines established by the USDA to receive milk through this program.

   These guidelines are posted on Second Harvest’s website:

This is the first time the USDA has purchased fresh milk to be distributed through its Emergency Food Assistance Program or TEFAP Program – a program which is funded by the nation’s Farm Bill and serves as year-round source of nutritious food items for Second Harvest Food Bank and other Feeding America food banks working to combat hunger in local communities.
