Dairy Farmers Donate Cheese to Food Banks

INDIANAPOLIS — In recognition of June as Dairy Month and Hunger Awareness Day, Milk Promotion Services of Indiana (MPSI) and Fair Oaks Farms have partnered to donate 4,000 pounds of cheese to food banks in the Hoosier State. Five food banks will each receive 800 pounds of Fair Oaks Farms' Muenster cheese.

“Muenster is a kid favorite and great on gilled cheese or deli sandwiches and tastes great in quesadillas or lasagna,” said Julie Basich, general manager of Fair Oaks Farms.

Fair Oaks Farms is a family-owned business located in Fair Oaks, Ind., that provides milk to some of the largest companies in the country for their dairy products. Fair Oaks produces all of its award-winning artisan cheeses without added growth hormones or antibiotics. All of the milk needed to make the cheese comes from the farm’s 27,000 cows.

MPSI is a not-for-profit nutrition education and advertising promotion organization funded by and serving Indiana dairy producers.

This is a fantastic example of a company donating its goods or services to benefit the communities it serves. Food banks are always in need, and what could be better than a 4,000 pounds of award-winning gourmet cheese!
