MORRISVILLE, N.Y. — SUNY Morrisville is holding a dairy drive Friday to provide milk, cheese and yogurt to families in need in local communities.
There will be a drive-thru set up at the SUNY Morrisville Dairy Complex on Eaton Street from 4 – 6 p.m.
SUNY Morrisville professor of dairy science, Ashley Adams Marshall, says this event was organized to help local residents, as well as dairy farms.
“We wanted to do something to help those in the community during these difficult times,” said Marshall. “Not only does this help those in need in our community, but it also helps the struggling dairy industry since the demand on dairy products has dropped dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Products for the drive were donated by Dairy Farmers of America, Hood and Chobani.
Students and faculty will be following social distancing and sanitation guidelines during the event.
