Northern Illinois Food Bank celebrates distribution of 5 millionth serving of milk to hungry

For the most vulnerable in our communities, a glass of milk may come as often as New Year's Day. For the past three years, Northern Illinois Food Bank has been working to change that, and in December 2015 distributed its 5 millionth serving of milk through its Milk2MyPlate Program. To celebrate the milestone, a group of program donors, dairy farmes, representatives from the dairy industry and participating food pantries came together Jan. 11 for a special reception at Northern Illinois Food Bank's West Suburban Center in Geneva.
