Milk, eggs, cheeses, and butter plus specialty items such yogurt or ice cream would be distributed in the form of dairy bags to those needing food. A food distribution of only dairy products would be organized in the form of a Dairy Pantry.
Where are you at with the solution? Idea stage
Why might this be a valuable solution for Indy? Dairy items are expensive and not often found at most food pantries or as items in food baskets distributed through community organizations or churches. These are perishable items that food distributors and grocery stores need to dispose of quickly. Dairy items are also valuable food sources and a necessary part of a balanced daily diet.
What resources, advice or support would be helpful for you in moving forward? Contacts that are willing to supply the dairy items and a source for picking these items up in a timely manner. Also a location that would be wiling to allow their facility to be used to handout the dairy bags.
