Groups team up for drive-thru milk distribution to help families in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties

More than 4,000 gallons of milk are expected to be given away at the drive-thru events.

PENNSYLVANIA, USA — Several groups are teaming up this week to distribute more than 4,000 gallons of milk for free to families in need in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties.

The American Dairy Association North East is working with milk processor, Harrisburg Dairies, to organize the local drive-thru events.

It's made possible through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, which has offered government-funded grants to food banks and community organizations during the pandemic.

Organizers say there are a few important rules to remember. All drivers and passengers must remain in their vehicles. Walk-ups are not permitted. The milk will be placed in your trunk. If you don't have a trunk, you'll be asked to open your window.

Several drive-thru locations will be set up on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
