In celebration of the holidays, the California Milk Advisory Board has introduced a collaboration with cheese shop Lady & Larder and cheese expert Jessica Lawrenz to present the California Cheese Wreath Kit, a collection of cheeses, dried fruit, nuts and crackers used to create an edible arrangement.
Each kit ordered will include a donation of $20 to Feeding America in support of families in need. Only California Cheese Wreath Kit purchases at Lady & Larder made through Jan. 30 will qualify.
The California Cheese Wreath kit features three cow’s milk specialty cheeses made with Real California Milk from the state’s farm families, California almonds, dried citrus wheels, raisins, cherries, crackers, dried herbs and a round bamboo cheese board, as well as instructions for assembling a festive cheese wreath. The wreath sells for $175 and is available for pickup at Lady & Larder in Santa Monica or online here for shipping to most states.
“We love cheese boards, but cheese wreaths take the celebration to the next level. It’s a centerpiece, a family project, and an edible arrangement all in one. And we’re excited to partner with Lady & Larder to create a kit that makes it easy to prepare and allows us to give back,” said Jennifer Giambroni, VP of communications.
Launched June 1, the #CADAIRY4GOOD initiative focuses on increasing access to dairy foods made with Real California Milk for people in need and to identify sustainable partnerships to expand the reach and resources available to feeding programs throughout the state.
The California Milk Advisory Board, an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is funded by the state’s dairy farm families. With a vision to nourish the world with the wholesome goodness of Real California Milk, the association’s programs focus on increasing demand for the state’s sustainable dairy products in the state, across the U.S. and around the world through advertising, public relations, research, and retail and foodservice promotional programs.
