Wisconsin Sends 17,000 Pounds of Cheese to Houston

Wisconsin Sends 17,000 Pounds of Cheese to Houston

Wisconsin is helping Hurricane Harvey survivors by sending cheese

Wisconsin cheesemakers are donating over 17,000 pounds of cheese and 300 pounds of butter to Hurricane Harvey survivors in Houston.

Thousands of people have been displaced by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, and many people need food and clean water. Now Wisconsin is helping out by sending over 17,000 pounds of cheese.

According to WLOX, about two dozen Wisconsin-based cheese companies and the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board have teamed up to send a large truck full of cheese and butter to help survivors in Houston. They’re also sending 300 pounds of butter.

Cheese is a comfort food, and organizers say they hope the gift will help people feel better. The whole thing will go to the Houston Food Bank.

"It's a very small thing for us to do, with what they're facing, but let's face it: cheese is comfort food. It makes you happy. So, if we can bring a little bit of happiness to the folks down there, then that's what we want to do," said Suzanne Fanning, vice president of national product communictions for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

The big truck full of cheese will leave for Houston on Tuesday and is expected to arrive by Thursday.
