Lewisburg, Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets, Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association, Feeding Pennsylvania and American Dairy Association North East is celebrating National Dairy Month with the kickoff of the “Fill A Glass With Hope” campaign.

The June 1 event at Weis Markets in Lewisburg featured appearances from Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding, former Pittsburgh Steelers star Charlie Batch and local dairy farmer Dina Zug. 

Weis Markets customers can round up their grocery bills at checkout to help fight hunger throughout June. In addition, Weis will host the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s “Milkshakes On The Moo-ve” truck at area stores for milkshake fans to enjoy those popular milkshakes.

“No one in Pennsylvania should be denied access to nutritious food, including fresh milk, especially the over half a million children in our Commonwealth who are facing hunger every day,” said Jane Clements, CEO of Feeding Pennsylvania.

“Milk is one of the most requested items in our charitable food network and Feeding Pennsylvania’s member food banks are extremely appreciative of our dairy farmers and business leaders such as Weis Markets for investing in this amazing program so that we can purchase milk, at a reduced price, directly from local dairy processors and distribute it to Pennsylvania families in need.” 

Donations will be distributed to the following local food banks to purchase milk: Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, Helping Harvest, Philabundance, Second Harvest Food Bank of NEPA and the Lehigh Valley and the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank.

“We applaud the leadership of Weis Markets and all of our partners in the fight against hunger in June Dairy Month. Thanks to the generosity of our farmers, consumers and businesses, we have expanded our ability to pour fresh, nutritious milk across Pennsylvania to nourish food insecure children and families through our successful Fill A Glass With Hope Campaign,” said Dave Smith, executive director of PA Dairymen’s Association.

The Pennsylvania Dairymen’s “Milkshakes On The Moo-ve” truck will be available at Weis Markets stores in Pennsylvania throughout the month of June. The upcoming events will be on:

  • June 7, at Weis Markets, 4525 Valley Road, Enola
  • June 15, at Weis Markets, 7801 Glenlivet Drive W, Fogelsville
  • June 21, at Weis Markets, 2425 Schoenersville Road, Bethelehem
  • June 23, at Weis Markets, 3440 Grandview Drive, Macungie

The Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association has been supporting “Fill a Glass with Hope” with agriculture partners, Feeding Pennsylvania, American Dairy Association North East, corporate partners and food banks since 2015.
