It’s the time of year to spread a little extra joy and do something simple to brighten someone’s day.

This holiday season you may spot a vintage milk and cookies delivery truck at skating rinks, toboggan hills, trees farms and festivals for a new initiative called “24 Days of Cookies” across Ontario.

In partnership with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, Gay Lea Foods will be handing out cookies and milk to families at fun activities plus making stops to firefighters, police officers, crossing guards and many others who keep our communities safe.

The 24 Days of Cookies program runs between Dec. 1 and 24.

“The program gives our collective of farming families an opportunity to thank all the families who support our local farmers each and every day,” said Goodwill.
