Food pantries getting milk left behind after shuttering of Golden Guernsey

WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - Food pantries in southern Wisconsin are starting to receive milk that was left behind when the Golden Guernsey dairy plant in Waukesha closed on January 5th.

A court-appointed trustee who’s handling the firm’s bankruptcy petition agreed to release thousands of gallons of stored milk. That was after Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force highlighted a state law in which anyone who donates food is exempt from liability if someone gets sick from it.

Sherri Tussler of the Hunger Task Force is telling pantries and their clients to act quickly to get the milk. Most of it has sell-by dates of January 20th through 22nd – and it’s got to be used by then or soon after.

Meanwhile, state officials will hold sessions Wednesday and Thursday in Pewaukee to help the 100 people who lost their jobs when Golden Guernsey abruptly closed. Workers will learn about the help that’s available to find new work – and to get the necessary training.
