    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.
