With over 3 million households in California facing down food insecurity, a partnership is tackling a statewide issue and carving out a space in the hearts of its home market. California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB) will be partnering with Raley’s Food For Families program to deliver milk and dairy foods to provide nourishment for families in need.

Zoe Edwards, Operations Specialist, Raley’s Food For Families“We are excited to partner with Real California Milk to bring dairy products to our food bank partners,” Zoe Edwards, Raley’s Food For Families Operations Specialist, commented. “Year-around we accept donations to Food For Families to help alleviate hunger in our communities. Dairy is an important food group, providing nutrients and additional sources of protein to our food bank partners and their clients.”

With help from customers, vendors, and Raley’s team members, Raley’s Food For Families has provided millions of meals to local families as it looks to honor June's National Dairy Month. Raley’s absorbs all administrative costs, maximizing the impact of every donation.
