Cheese Please! This will help our nation’s dairy farmers and our nations needy!
Give a half hour of your time to Call/ E-Mail/ Write
Food banks in dire need! Cheese is piled high in inventory (supposedly, I guess we don’t really know that since they are not required to formal audits)!
Government has already OK’d bail out money for financial institutions (much of that went to cover “bonuses” for CEO’s outstanding jobs of getting them into such a mess).
I would much rather see it go directly to those who need it. Unfortunately the government will have the sole burden of this. It is sad that many of these companies that are holding the inventory had record profits.
It would make sense to me that they might “donate” some product out of the goodness of their heart and relieve some of their inventory burden.
Wouldn’t that have been an awesome public relations move to help the hungry and to also help the many family farms that supply them milk, enabling them to obtain record profits? What a show of philanthropy!
That doesn’t seem to be the case so I urge you, in phone calls, e-mails, or good old fashion letter writing, call on your representatives. Below is a link that should help you locate their phone numbers, emails, or addresses. A long letter or call is not necessary just write or call and state:
Dear Representative ….
Please support USDA Funds to purchase Cheese to be placed directly into nation’s food banks.
