Got Moo-lah?

You might have to pay a load for that 1/2 caf double splash of non-fat extra dry latte.
Effective Sunday, the California department of food and agriculture has set the price California dairy operators will be paid at a record $1.98 per gallon of milk, up from $1.06 a year ago. The minimum retail price for a gallon of low-fat milk, said the Department, will be $3.10, compared to $2.10 in January.

The State posts the "lowest reported lawful retail price'' for milk due to a law that says milk cannot be sold below cost.

The price spike -- the result of a drought in Australia, tightening supplies from Europe, higher demand in asia and the diversion of feed corn to ethanol plants -- also threatens to jack up the cost of cheese, lattes, chocolate bars and pizzas. - SFGate

Hi Jill-

I am writing to inform you about Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to help end childhood hunger by having a bake sale in their community. Now in its’ fourth year, over 1 million people have participated in the campaign to aid the 12 million children in America who are at risk of hunger. The campaign, which runs through August, was recently promoted by celebrity chef Rachael Ray on ABC.

Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale offers a unique way for you to connect with your readers about the severity of childhood hunger in America while providing them with a simple and fun way of how they can fight it. Perhaps you can include information about the campaign in a section of this blog?

I was unable to find an email in which to contact you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and I can provide you more information about the campaign.

Thank you,

Max Kelemen
