Thanks to the generosity of your own Michigan dairy farmers and milk processors and the wonderful folks at the United Dairy Industry of Michigan, the world’s only rock & roll nutrition show Jump with Jill will be provided at no cost to a select number of schools across Michigan in support of Milk Means More.
“Not only is milk a high quality protein and nutrient source, it is one of Michigan’s leading agricultural products, generating nearly 40,000 jobs,” says the star of the Midwest Jump with Jill Cast, Laura Brown, MS, RD. “It’s so fun to sing about a food that is healthy for our bodies, our communities, and our environment.”
