SUNBURY, PA. - To celebrate National Dairy Month in June, Weis Markets is teaming up with the Pennsylvania Dairymen's Association with instore events and a partnership with Feeding America.
Throughout the month of June, the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association will host pop-up Milkshakes on the Moo-ve events at Wies Markets that will allow customers to try out the association’s PA Dairy Milkshake — a favorite at the annual PA Farm Show.
Milkshake sale proceeds will benefit Pennsylvania ag-related charities, along with Feeding PA's Fill A Glass With Hope® fresh milk program for families in need. Weis customers will also have the option to round up their grocery payments at checkout counters to help fight hunger throughout the month of June statewide.
"Weis Markets is proud to partner with the Pennsylvania Dairymen's Association to address hunger in our communities while supporting Pennsylvania dairy farmers," said Ron Bonacci, Weis Markets vice president of advertising and marketing. "We know that milk is a cornerstone of a nutritious diet for kids and families and is in high demand at area food banks. We're grateful to the Pennsylvania Dairymen's Association for their commitment to fighting hunger and supporting the dairy industry."
Milk is a highly requested food item at food banks across the country, with nearly 600,000 children facing food insecurity in Pennsylvania, according to the PA Dairymen's Association.
"We are grateful to have outstanding community leaders such as Weis Markets behind our state's number one industry and once again helping us to provide fresh milk to children and families in need to tackle hunger,” said Dave Smith, PA Dairymen's Association executive director. “In addition, individuals and businesses are still reaching out in record numbers asking where they can get our famous milkshakes for a great cause. We are blessed that businesses and community groups like Weis Markets have really stepped up to help support Pennsylvania's dairy farmers, along with our philanthropic endeavors by requesting Milkshake Pop-Ups in communities."
