Penny-a-Glass Milk Station

By Philip L. Seman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1914

The author describes the "Penny-a-Glass Milk Association," a project of the Chicago Hebrew Institute, whose function is to operate milk stations selling a glass of milk or a package of crackers for one penny each throughout the city, especially in parks and recreational areas. It is based on Nathan Straus' New York model, and has become very popular. The milk stands not only sell milk as an alternative to the junk food otherwise available, they also serve as points for the distribution of nutritional information to the mothers and children who are the most frequent clients. The Association promises to become entirely self-supporting, and the author strongly recommends the adoption of this project by other cities.
