We’re strengthening lives through the goodness of dairy

Strategic giving with the Dean Foods Foundation.

The Dean Foods Foundation is a way for us to make structured contributions to causes and organizations that share our values.

What these organizations have in common is their role in nourishing communities, from addressing childhood hunger to responsible agriculture that gets fresh, flavorful food off to the best possible start.

Childhood nutrition

As a leading producer of good-for-you food products, we provide children with nutritious food. We support programs and organizations that work to prevent childhood hunger and give children the wholesome foods they need to live fulfilled lives.

Youth leadership

Through our scholarship program and donations, we help fund education, leadership and scholarship in the next generation.

Dairy stewardship

Our commitment to nutritious food has to start on the farm. We work with thousands of dairy farmers and offer them guidance on dairy stewardship.

Disaster relief

In times of crisis, we proactively and urgently support the communities where we do business. Working with our regional plants, we’re able to combine financial support with product donations. More than that, our employee-funded Milk Money Employee Disaster Relief program helps our team members who have been directly impacted by natural disasters and home catastrophes.
