WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Demand for food has only gone up during the coronavirus pandemic, and food banks are feeling the pressure.

Dairy company Kemps teamed up with supermarket chain Roundy's Wednesday, Dec. 2, to donate and deliver milk to food pantries across Wisconsin.

Kemps is donating 175,000 shelf-safe milk cartons with about 50,000 of those going to Feeding America Southeastern Wisconsin.

"Milk is a highly requested, yet very rarely donated item to food banks and for food pantries," said James Hyland of Roundy's Supermarkets, Inc. "But it's very important because it's a great source of protein and some other important nutrients."

The shelf-safe cartons can last up to 12 months, versus 20 days for regular milk -- a big advantage for food pantries.
