Through their dairy checkoff investment, America's dairy producers are helping to provide special care packages, with pizza from Gino's East of Chicago and Edwardo's Natural Pizza, high-protein Athletes Honey Milk and footballs, to our nation's military for this Sunday's big game. Dairy producers are partnering with DHL, Good Cow and the non-profit organization Pizzas 4 Patriots to honor the troops.
This effort provides an important sampling opportunity because high-protein Athletes Honey Milk is a high-calcium, low-fat, shelf-stable milk product that meets the specific nutritional needs of our troops, creating a potential new opportunity for increased consumption. In addition, dairy producers donated 500 footballs to equip the troops for impromptu games on the bases.
The care packages are being delivered to 30,000 military personnel at Camps Liberty and Victory in Baghdad. For more information about the Pizzas 4 Patriots organization, visit www.pizzas4patriots.org
