Since the COVID pandemic started, we have become used to shortages being a thing. Most people can recall the toilet paper issue that took place at the start of the pandemic and people were panic buying as much as they could. There is a good chance that you have a stockpile of toilet paper left over from those days?

Fast forward a couple of years and we continue to see shortages. Most of the time, these are related to a lack of workers at various plants or labor strikes or issues with transporting products. It can be very frustrating and, in some cases, it can get very expensive as demand increases over supply.

The latest shortage is unique in the fact that it is all about the availability, or lack of, the containers for milk.

WHAM in Rochester, New York is reporting that:

Local school districts are looking into alternatives amid the national milk carton shortage, which could last through the end of this year.

"There is milk available, so that’s a good thing — it's just the containers that have to be different."

It is an issue that is affecting people across the nation, not just here in New York State.

The good news is that the milk supply is not affected. Also, a big thank you to the hardworking dairy farmers here in New York State!
