Minnesota Viking Kyle Rudolph talked about the importance of milk Wednesday and making sure hungry families across the country are getting enough milk in their diets.
"Obviously I didn't get like this without food and without milk," Rudolph said about being an athlete.
The 'Great American Milk Drive' kicked off Wednesday.
Second Harvest Heartland and other food shelves say they're not getting enough milk donations - so families in need aren't getting the milk they need in their diets.
The campaign is trying to change that.
Julie Mattson with the Midwest Dairy Association stopped by KSTP-TV to discuss the lack of donations.
