Borden's delivers 45,000 milk servings to Hurricane Florence victims.

Loading up a semi-truck full of 45,000 individual servings of whole, 2% and chocolate milk, Borden Dairy Company has joined forces with the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and World Central Kitchen to distribute dairy products to North Carolina residents affected by Hurricane Florence.

According to the company, the milk was processed in their London, Kentucky, plant as a special order for hurricane relief. Borden’s plant in North Charleston, South Carolina, was temporarily shut down due to the states mandatory evacuation order, however, it has since reopened on Sept. 16.

“Caring for our communities is at the heart of our values and history as a company,” said Borden CEO Tony Sarsam in a press release. “Borden is incredibly thankful that we were in a position to provide aid, and our thoughts are with the first responders and those who were displaced from their homes and routines this past week as a result of Hurricane Florence.”

World Central Kitchen has distributed the milk among evacuee shelters and centers serving the local communities in Wilmington and surrounding counties.
