Volunteers were on the lookout for your milk money.

AE Dairy held its Milk Money for Hunger event Wednesday morning.

Volunteers were outside the AE headquarters on the northeast corner of 23rd and University until 9 a.m.

Organizers say there’s not enough milk for all the homeless shelters and food kitchens in Des Moines.

“We named our event Milk Money for Hunger because if you can remember what it was like to go without milk money when you were at school, your friends usually helped you out, and that’s kind of the premise for our event today,” said President AE Dairy president and CEO Miriam Erickson-Brown.
