Price Chopper, milk co-op help food banks

Price Chopper/Market 32 will partner with American Dairy Association North East in support of Fill a Glass with Hope to provide fresh milk to local food banks during National Dairy Month and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shoppers at Price Chopper/ Market 32 stores across New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Vermont — including a store in Cortlandville — can round up their change at checkout to donate to help make milk available to children and families.

“Price Chopper/Market 32 recognizes that due to its perishable nature, milk remains the most requested but least donated item to food banks,” said Mona Golub, vice president of public relations and consumer services for Price Chopper.

“As we all adjust to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to support our dairy farmers, put nutritious food on our tables, and lend a helping hand to our neighbors in need,” said state Department of Agriculture and Markets Commissioner Richard A. Ball
