Gay Lea Foods Co-operative Limited  announced the arrival of its vintage milk and cookies delivery truck at skating rinks, toboggan hills, tree farms and festivals across Ontario this holiday season.

In partnership with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, Gay Lea Foods will be handing out cookies and milk, while spreading joy to families all in support of its “24 Days of Cookies” contest taking place this December. The truck will also make deliveries to firefighters, police officers, crossing guards and many others who make our communities better year-round.

Synonymous with baking with butter during the holiday season, Gay Lea Foods is a 100 per cent Canadian-owned co-operative with members on more than 1,400 dairy farms in Ontario and Manitoba. To help celebrate the holidays, the values-driven co-operative will be handing out 1,400 cookies and cartons of milk per day throughout the month of December. DFO is pleased to collaborate with Gay Lea, supporting growth and awareness of quality Ontario Dairy products.

“We’re excited to be bringing our milk and cookies delivery truck to thousands of people this holiday season and look forward to celebrating alongside them while also connecting with those who make our communities better,” says Rob Goodwill, Chair of Gay Lea Foods in a press release. “We have a long history of spreading joy through baking and this program gives our collective of farming families an opportunity to thank all the families who support our local farmers each and every day.”
