Frederick County Farm Bureau and the Frederick County Farm Safety Camp partnered with Dairy Maid Dairy to provide over 1,500 gallons of milk from area dairy producers to the Frederick County Rescue Mission and food banks throughout the County.
“We are proud to work with the Maryland Food Bank at the Frederick County Rescue Mission to get milk into the hands of those who need it most, while also supporting farmers and local businesses.” said President Sam Roop.
Although farmers are busy in the fields with spring planting, they recognize the need in the community, and are happy to help put dairy products where they’re needed most.
President Sam Roop, as well as directors of the farm bureau, were on hand to assist with the distribution of the milk. The Frederick County Rescue Mission will distribute the milk to the nine food banks located throughout the County.
