Successful Grant Cycle

After a year of educators working so hard to get through the year, we were thrilled by the interest to build and grow FUTP60 programs.  In all, $145,000 in spring grants were requested from schools around the state.  While being budget minded and dairy focused, we are excited to support 26 schools and schedule visits to them in the fall!
  • 16 school grants
  • 8 schools with supplies or FLAG-In-school kits
  • 2 cafeterias updated from the Colts

Equivalent Video

In partnership with the Indianapolis Colts and their mascot Blue, we created a fun way to demonstrate the great nutrition in fluid milk as compared to some other healthy foods.

We kicked off National Ice Cream Month in July with our annual Indianapolis-area ice cream social, this year a drive-thru event at Victory Field. Working with the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis, we raised $6000 for the organization and connected Indiana dairy farmers with Indiana communities. Check out the recap video from Hoosier Ag Today!
