Milk 4 Many

Milk 4 Many began when West Memorial Elementary School mom Linda Sheffield approached Katy ISD after noticing the number of unopened milk cartons trashed in the school lunchroom. “I knew that there were too many people in need that could utilize this milk and juice being thrown away,” Sheffield recalled. “I went straight to the Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Services Department to ask if the milk and juice could be collected and donated to a local food pantry.”

The concept is simple: coolers sit waiting by the trashcans in the school cafeteria. Children who have not opened their milk and juice cartons (and there are many) are asked to recycle instead of throwing the cartons in the trash. After lunch, volunteers deliver the goods to Katy Christian Ministries (KCM) where it is made available to families in need.

We are proud to support this great program here at Exley Elementary!
