In an effort to thank workers behind the front lines, American Dairy Association Indiana (ADAI) has partnered with Domino’s Pizza to provide special deliveries to the men and women working to get milk from Hoosier farms to the state’s dairy processing plants and on to grocery stores.
“Our dairy processors are working around the clock to make sure milk doesn’t ‘hit the ground’ and instead makes it into the homes of those who need it most,” said Jenni Browning, CEO of American Dairy Association Indiana. “We know people are struggling to get the nutrition they need, even more so now during the pandemic, so we want to recognize the hard work of these professionals and show our appreciation. Pizza is a comfort food that everyone loves – a food that provides nostalgia and joy, a sense of relief in this unprecedented time.”
Through their partnership with Domino’s franchises, ADAI provided coupons to over 1300 milk haulers and dairy processing plant workers to obtain free pizzas for their families. These plants are located throughout Indiana, and include Dairy Farmers of America in Goshen and Huntington, Pleasant View Dairy in Highland, Crossroad Farms Dairy in Indianapolis, and Prairie Farms in Fort Wayne, Anderson and Holland.
“Just as Indiana’s dairy farmers continue to work tirelessly to provide the nutritious milk for our favorite dairy foods, we recognize the hard work of the processors who enable the milk to travel from farms to processing plants to groceries. On behalf of our over 800 Hoosier dairy farm families, we thank our processing heroes!” Browning added.
