INDIANAPOLIS — Since mid-March when several regulations and restrictions were put into place to help slow the spread of COVID-19, and grocery store shelves were sparse from worried individuals stocking up, individuals have been working nonstop to get milk from Hoosier dairy farms, to Indiana processing plants and from there to grocery store shelves.

To help thank those individuals who have been working tirelessly to make sure Hoosiers have the necessary milk and dairy products they need, Domino’s Pizza has teamed up with American Dairy Association Indiana to provide free pizza coupons for workers and their families.

“Domino’s wanted to say thank you and provided coupons to over 1,300 milk haulers, processing plant workers and their families,” said ADAI CEO Jenni Browning.

Browning said ADAI had to work with several different Domino’s franchises throughout the state to make sure workers at various milk processing plants throughout the state received a coupon, including Dairy Farmers of America in Goshen and Huntington, Pleasant View Dairy in Highland, Crossroad Farms Dairy in Indianapolis and Prairie Farms in Fort Wayne, Anderson and Holland.

Browning said hundreds of milk processors have been working day in and day out to make sure that a single drop of milk does not go to waste, but instead into the hands of those who need it most.
