6 Months of Free Milk For Low-income Illinois Families
Beginning on October 23 and running through March 2019, The Illinois Department of Human Services and the Greater Chicago Food Depository have come together to provide free milk to families at local IDHS offices. According to ABC7 -
IDHS customers will be able to pick up milk in the parking lots of the six participating local offices during the six-month period. Food Depository trucks and vans will be located in IDHS office parking lots for two-hour periods on select dates each month. There is no need for IDHS customers to visit the office in order to receive the milk. They can go directly to the truck or van in the parking lot.
Any IDHS customer is eligible to receive the free milk. They will have all varieties available such as skim, 1%, 2%, and whole. According to Executive Director and CEO of the Food Depository -
Among families we serve, fresh milk is one of the most in-demand grocery items. Between IDHS and the Food Depository will allow us to provide our neighbors with nutritious USDA milk throughout the fall and winter months.
