Keep on Truckin' With These Grilled Cheese Recipes

A lot of people say grilled cheese is their favorite dairy food. And why not? It’s the perfect comfort food to warm up with for fall, not to mention a great meal to share with friends and family. 

To give the gift of dairy joy and comfort to New Yorkers, the Undeniably Dairy food truck will bring the farm to the big city, serving up grilled cheese sandwiches and chocolate milk in surprising places around New York on October 12 and October 13.

Attendees will enter our virtual barn and meet dairy farmers from around the country. We’re looking forward to bringing people together: It’s not often people from the biggest city in America get to meet the hard-working dairy farmers who work around the clock to bring nutritious, delicious and sustainable foods to our tables. These events will be a great opportunity to open some eyes and answer some questions about the world we live in and how we eat.
