“This incredible show of support to feed and nourish our first responders and families in need with local Georgia milk is the type of action our communities need right now,” Black said in a press release announcing the initiative. “I am proud of our state’s dairy farmers for giving back and for the continued work they do to provide safe and wholesome milk and dairy foods to our families, even during this crisis.”
In the coming weeks, the remaining 24,000 half-gallons of local Georgia milk will be donated to healthcare workers and first responders in Augusta, Macon and Savannah.
