MARCY – Congressman Anthony Brindisi spoke on Monday about how a rollback on flavored milk in schools could affect local dairy farmers.
A recent proposal was made to make flavored milk less available in New York City schools.
Brindisi sent a bipartisan letter to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, highlighting the importance of flavored milk in schools for both the children, and the upstate dairy farmers.
"Chocolate milk does more than just provide nutrients to kids, it unites democrats republicans and dairy farmers, and that’s an impressive feat, cheers," said Brindisi while at the DiNitto Farm, 6585 Benton Road, Marcy, where he held a press conference to discuss the proposal.
He says research shows children who drink flavored milk consume more necessary nutrients than those who don’t drink milk at all.
