Mid-Atlantic Milling Month


Origins of Mid-Atlantic Milling Month

In 2010 SPOOM Mid-Atlantic passed a resolution encouraging area mills to celebrate the history of flour milling and its importance to the growth of early America on Sunday, August 28, 2011. The milling industry not only provided food for Americans but through its world-leading exports added to the capital for America’s industrial growth. The purpose of Mid-Atlantic Regional Milling Day is to expand recognition through special educational programs at our mills. In 2014, June was designated as Mid-Atlantic Milling Month so host sites can select dates and format to best suit their mill. Experience to date suggests the wisdom of planning events on two successive days and partnering with other local mills for joint publicity.
