Smart PR

Dairy farmers can’t sell their milk at a profit. Many have taken to dumping it. Cows don’t know that so they keep producing. Here is a program that pays farmers for excess milk and then turns it into cheese and yogurt for the poor. It’s smart PR. Product that would otherwise go to waste is being put to good use. It is not a new idea. The government had a surplus program that stored tons of cheese. The difference here is that private charities are tackling the problem and getting good results. There should be more of this in the US. Food dumping is almost a crime when hundreds of millions around the world go hungry. The richest country in the world can and should do better.
