The Need Has Never Been More Urgent.

We don’t know the full ramifications of the pandemic yet. But we do know it’s left far too many families hungry in our communities. Let’s fix that.

1 in 4 families with school aged children struggle with hunger.

Families served by food shelves often receive less than 1 gallon of milk per person a year.

Milk is one of the most requested items at food shelves, yet it’s one of the least donated, because it requires refrigeration throughout the entire journey from donation to table. Kids-in-need are hit especially hard, even if they get milk through free or reduced-price meal programs at school, because those programs don’t help during the evenings, weekends, or holidays.

Since 1914, Kemps farm families have been providing wholesome products to communities throughout the midwest. And now, through The Giving Cow™ Project, we aim to do even more to care for those in our communities who need it most.

Giving Cow® on the Moo-ve.

We’re delivering Giving Cow® milks to amazing local partners all across the midwest. Providing supplemental meals to families. And helping fill in the gaps of food access kids face during weekends, summers and extended breaks.
Help us keep the giving going!

Since 2019, we’ve donated more than 3 million Giving Cow® cartons throughout MN, WI, IA, IL, NE, and SD.

This one-of-a-kind milk has helped food shelves and after-school meal programs get nutritious meals to families in your local communities. Because even one child hungry is too many.


Milk makes all the difference.

Proper nutrition is crucial for a child’s mental, emotional and physical development. Kids with access to healthy meals have less health problems, do better in school and thrive in our communities.

100% Real Milk

Shelf stable milk is still 100% real milk. The only difference is it needs no refrigeration. And since most food shelves lack adequate cooler space, The Giving Cow™ is the perfect solution to providing milk to kids in need. It can last up to 12 months at room temperature and still have all the same nutrients, vitamins and deliciousness.
