Minerva Dairy donated 10 cases of its eight-ounce maple syrup butter to Minerva Salvation Army on April 26 as part of a hunger relief challenge.

Minerva Dairy is a member of the Specialty Food Association, which recently held its "East Coast versus West Coast" Embrace Hunger Relief Challenge. The competition challenged members across the U.S. to see who could volunteer the most hours, donate the most food, or donate the most in monetary funds during the association's Embrace Hunger Relief month.
Minerva Dairy's donation of butter will be used to support local families in need of food assistance. The Salvation Army serves an average of 250 families per month.
