    The milky way
    The Regina and District Food Bank is milking a recycling program for all it’s worth to provide healthy nutrition for young children.More than 150 companies and organizations have joined a food bank program that recycles inkjet and laser cartridges and uses the proceeds to provide milk, formula and baby food to the food bank’s youngest clients.Almost half the food bank’s 10,000 clients are children and studies have shown daily consumption of milk plays an important role in building healthy bones and teeth as children grow.Grand & Toy and the University of Regina this week joined the effort, which aims to eventually provide fresh milk to up to 4,000 school-age children whose families rely on the food bank.Each recycled cartridge can purchase up to four litres of milk and the university alone generates about 2,500 cartridges a year.Food banks across the country are involved in the thINK Food project — allowing companies to safely dispose of old cartridges and give something tangible to the most vulnerable in their communities.
