Foundation Donor/Partner Since 2017
Dean Foods is a leading food and beverage company, producing a full line of dairy and soy products. As one of the nation’s largest dairy providers, Dean Foods feels passionately about ensuring kids consume enough nutrients, especially those found in milk. For this reason, the company supports childhood nutrition programs, as well as youth leadership and scholarship programs. From 2010 through 2016, Dean Foods awarded $340,000 in educational scholarships to children of their employees, and an additional $250,000 of scholarships were awarded to the organization, Future Farmers of America. Through their regional teams, Dean Foods also supports disaster relief and hunger relief initiatives, donating product and financial support to food banks during times of need. In late 2018, DairyPure and TrueMoo, two brands within Dean Foods, joined together to donate 500,000 meals to hungry families during the holidays.
