Support the Lively Run Cheese Donation GoFundMe

Lively Run Dairy is making cheese from the excess milk that would otherwise be dumped and donating it to local food banks.

Farmers in Upstate NY are being forced to dump milk because of oversupply. Meanwhile, foodbanks need more resources to help people in need. We’re connecting the dots by purchasing dumped milk and turning it into cheese.
