Today, over 50 million Americans suffer from food insecurity, and more than one in six households does not have the money to buy food their families need. This reality is something food banks witness daily.
“People came to us once in a while for food,” said Ross Fraser of Feeding America in a recent article published on Slate. “Now we are a staple in many people’s lives.”
This startling increase has gotten the attention of many food banks and shelters who are whole-heartedly committed to not only provide food, but to also provide nutritious items like the low-fat or fat-free dairy or produce that many Americans lack in their diets.

Crossing the finish line wasn’t be the only glory for race car driver Tony Kanaan this weekend at the Indy 500.
Kanaan carried on a tradition dating back to the late 1920s, when second-time race winner Lewis Meyer requested a refreshing glass of ice cold milk after his win. Since then, nearly 60 winners of the iconic race have been presented with a bottle of milk — now engraved with the phrase “Indianapolis 500 Winner” — after crossing the finish line.
The bottle of milk given to winners was ranked No. 1 among the sports world’s coolest prizes by Sports Illustrated.

Many Americans are unsure of where their next meal is coming from. Additionally, many populations are overweight and undernourished due to availability of quality, nutritious food.
Several panels of speakers — from dairy producers to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack — gathered in Washington, D.C., at a Future of Food event sponsored by Washington Post Live and National Dairy Council to discuss how to continue feeding the world’s ever-growing population and dairy’s essential role in the cause.
Here’s a roundup of highlights, tweets, photos and stories — including photos of celebrity chef Victor Albisu, who was on hand to teach a group of Fuel Up to Play 60 students how to build healthier meals — from the event and the #thinkfood social conversation.
Our current global food system leaves almost 870 million people hungry each day. That’s why America’s dairy farmers remain committed to helping solve not only our nation’s hunger issues, but those faced by people across the globe.
“It will be America’s farmers who will be responsible for feeding a growing population,” Tom Gallagher, CEO of National Dairy Council, said today at a Future of Food event in Washington, D.C. “America’s farmers are ready to meet the challenge, and we encourage the rest of the world to meet that challenge as well.”
In order to feed a growing population, global food production will need to increase by over 60 percent over the next 40 years, Gallagher said in a blog post published today on the Chicago Council of Global Affairs website.
