Shamrock Farms, in partnership with the Arizona Diamondbacks, kicked off their “Grand Slam Milk Drive” benefiting St. Mary’s Food Bank with a cow milking contest at the Diamondbacks’ Chase Field.
Last season, the D-backs (and Levy Restaurants) donated more than six tons of stadium food from Chase Field. This season, Shamrock Farms is stepping up to the plate with a matching donation of 6,000 gallons of milk (1,000 gallons for every ton of food donated throughout the season.) This program begins our efforts around June Dairy month and reinforces our overall brand strategy of nourishing families in our community.
Nearly one in four children, one in five Arizonans, and one in seven seniors in Arizona live in poverty and go to bed hungry. Arizona ranks fifth in the country for high child food-insecurity rates, with more than 400,000 children facing hunger every day. You can take part in the Grand Slam Milk Drive, just head to Shamrock Farms’ website for details.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are hosting Hunger Awareness Night presented by Arizona Milk Producers (AMP) on Friday, Sept. 9. The D-backs will be handing out head boppers that say “Take A Bite Out of Hunger.”
Arizona Milk Producers will have a booth in the sandlot with activities and prizes for the kids.
