Chef’s Brigade and Dairy MAX are on a mission to eradicate food insecurity in Louisiana

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chef’s Brigade built a powerful alliance to feed thousands upon thousands of our food-insecure neighbors daily, while simultaneously providing badly needed funds to our local and independent restaurants, purveyors, and chefs.

Meanwhile, as schools and restaurants began to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, dairy farmers in Louisiana and across the 8-state Dairy MAX region heard and answered the call to nourish their local communities above and beyond their usual efforts. 95% of dairy farms are family-owned, and you can rest assured that Louisiana farmers are firmly entrenched in the local community.

The work to combat food insecurity and to care for our environment is why dairy is a big part of sustainable nutrition. It’s produced by dairy farmers who are constantly improving the efficiency and environmental friendliness of their farms. Today, a gallon of milk is produced using 65% less water, 90% less land, and 63% less carbon than production of a gallon of milk in 1944.

Dairy is a huge part of the American diet, providing nearly 20% of the protein and more than 50% of the calcium and vitamin D…at just 2% of the U.S. carbon footprint. 365 days a year, dairy farmers are hard at work, producing an offering that’s affordable, nutritious and sustainable for hungry families in need.
