The well-known milk distributor, working jointly with a U.S. Department of Agriculture program, made a special delivery at Franciscan Health Fitness Centers, 221 U.S. 41 in Schererville on Tuesday, June 30.

A truck in the south side of the parking lot had 1,000 one-gallon jugs of 2 percent milk ready to deliver to hospital workers and to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Cars were lined up at 3:30 as distribution began, continuing until all the gallons were given away by Prairie Farms and Franciscan Health volunteers.
