The United Dairy Industry of Michigan will donate milk coolers to 18 food banks in the state, the organization said in a press release Tuesday.

The group’s pilot grant program that made the donations possible will also provide funds for milk when they coolers are delivered to food banks.

UDIM said in the release that milk is an often-requested item at food banks, but a lack of refrigeration units can make it hard for food banks to provide it.

The food banks getting the coolers are:

• Angels of Action, Big Rapids

• Bad Axe Free Methodist Food Pantry, Bad Axe

• Be Love Outreach, Grandville

• Beacon of Hope Family Care Center, St. Johns

• Cooperative Ministry, Lake City

• Feed the Need – Alpena, Alpena
