WISCONSIN — While food banks are reporting increased demand across the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, a locally-based company is donating "shelf-stable" milk to area food banks.

Kemps is donating 250,000 Giving Cows to area food banks. The milk is specially-designed, shelf-stable milk that have a shelf-life of up to 12 months. The milk comes in single-serve, 8-ounce boxes. According to Kemps, fresh milk has a shelf life of approximately 20 days from processing. Giving Cows are specifically designed for food pantries.

“Knowing that so many children are missing out on milk due to school closures, we knew that we had to help provide a solution,” said Rachel Kyllo, a spokesperson for Kemps. “Our shelf-stable Giving Cow packs are a great way to help kids get nutrient-rich milk, which is a childhood essential.”

Kemps is donating 250,000 Giving Cows through the Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin - Milwaukee office on April 22.
