MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A group of dairy farmers brought their products to Milwaukee's Clinton Rose Senior Center Thursday, Sept. 3, for a food giveaway that helps both the givers and the receivers. 

Their cheese and milk is part of the Dairy Recovery Program, created after the coronavirus hit. 

The Hunger Task Force bought the dairy products to help keep the farmers and producers in business, and the milk and cheese winds up in the refrigerators of people who really need it.

"It means the world that they came down and see how their service is really touching our participants," said Sheila Carter, manager of the Clinton Rose Senior Center. "I appreciate them even doing it for us in this area. It means a lot to us."

So far, the Dairy Recovery Program has bought and distributed 150,000 gallons of milk and 450,000 pounds of cheese.
