Just as freshness starts on the farm, local communities need grass-roots support.

                Giving back on a local level.

                With almost 70 locations across the U.S., we’re uniquely able to build close, intimate relationships with communities. Our headquarters and local dairy plants nurture communities around their specific needs, from financial contributions to product donations.

                It’s all part of our determination to enrich lives with the wholesome goodness of dairy – not just individual health, but the wellbeing of the farms, towns and cities where we operate.

                Volunteering our time

                With Project Outpour, our Dallas area employees generously give their time to help local charity partners with practical, hands-on support.

                Financial support

                Our local businesses are always listening to their communities and helping with sponsorships and contributions to the causes that matter most.

                Product donations

                From food banks to disaster response, our local businesses are passionate about giving the goodness of dairy to as many people as possible.
