PCK Shows Their Milk Muscles

Members of our Philabundance Community Kitchen (PCK) team take a break to show off their “milk muscles”

According to the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association, consuming three daily servings of low-fat milk, cheese or yogurt is “an easy way for families to get a powerful punch of nutrients to help build stronger bones and healthy bodies and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.”

Want to ensure all families have access to fresh milk? Support our Fill a Glass with Hope campaign, while also enjoying PCK Chef Hugo’s rice pudding recipe that makes for a legen-“DAIRY” treat!

Chef Hugo’s Rice Pudding (serves 6)

1 quart whole milk
1 cup short-grain or long-grain white rice
6 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus more as needed
1/4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
Pinch of salt
Toppings such as chopped nuts, dried or fresh fruit, cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)


  • Place the milk, rice, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Lower the heat to a bare simmer and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender and the mixture thickens (about 20 minutes).
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla or almond extract. Taste, adding additional sugar or toppings as desired.
