Eighteen food banks in Michigan are going to be receiving new milk coolers donated by the United Dairy Industry of Michigan, according to WILX.

The pilot grant program that the group had started will also help provide funds for milk when the coolers are actually delivered.

In a release, released by the UDIM, they said milk is a highly requested item among food banks. Storing milk, however, has been one of the challenges.

The list of food banks that will be receiving the coolers are:
