Actors Matt Bomer and Jaime Camil, the creators of ‘Got Milk?,’ The California Milk Processor Board and California Dairy Farmers have partnered with Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger-relief and food rescue organization in the country, to help get 1 million meals and 1 million servings of milk to California families facing hunger. They’re calling it the #foodforthought initiative, donating to food banks throughout the Golden State and they’ve enlisted some famous Californian faces to help.
“I’ve spent some time here today behind-the-scenes at a Los Angeles food bank shadowing staffers and volunteers to really get a feel for the impactful and profound work happening at Feeding America member food banks throughout the state," said Bomer.
During the visit they honored volunteers with a meal and special care package and the California Dairy Farmers presented a $300,000 donation to Feeding America. “Every dollar donated to Feeding America secures the equivalent of at least 10 meals on behalf of their network of local member feeding programs, including nutritious foods like milk,” said the actor.
This –the first of many of what they’re calling #foodforthought acts of kindness. “Starting this week each #foodforthought mission of kindness shared and engaged with on Instagram that mentions @gotmilk through September 30th generates a $1 Feeding America donation from the California Milk Processor Board to help contribute meals towards the 1 million meals goal,” said Jaime Camil.
