Dairy plant closure brings free milk to La Crosse


LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—The unexpected closing of a dairy plant in Waukesha means a windfall for food pantries across the state.

More than eight truckloads of milk and dairy products from the Golden Guernsey Plant are going to the needy statewide.

Tuesday, some of that milk made its way to La Crosse.

Dozens of cars waited in line, at Bridgeview Plaza, for their share from the Hunger Task Force of La Crosse.

Hunger Task Force said the plants closure is sad news for Wisconsin, but good news they're able to help the community.

"If we can save a couple dollars on your grocery bill that's terrific because what we don't want is to see it go to waste," Shelly Krause, Executive Director, Hunger Task Force said.

Any left over milk from the local distribution goes to the Hunger Task Force for distribution to local food pantries.
