Dairy Management Inc. (DMI) and checkoff partner Pizza Hut joined forces to give away half a million pizzas to Class of 2020 high school graduates.

“We are so excited to partner with Pizza Hut to help high school seniors and their families celebrate this special milestone in their lives,” said Marilyn Hershey, a Pennsylvania dairy farmer and chair of Rosemont, Ill.-based DMI, which manages the national dairy checkoff. “This is a shining example of what we accomplish when dairy farmers and importers build relationships with a company such as Pizza Hut through our checkoff.”

The promotion was officially announced on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on May 21, DMI said.

“We’re proud to partner with America’s hard-working dairy farmers to bring students who are missing out on their chance to cross the stage with their diploma, an opportunity to celebrate with their favorite Pizza Hut pizza,” said George Felix, chief marketing officer, Pizza Hut.

To claim a free pizza, graduating high school seniors may visit www.pizzahut.com/gradparty and sign into their Hut Rewards accounts; a coupon for a one-topping medium pizza will be deposited into their accounts while supplies last. Coupons will be valid for online redemption through June 4, DMI said.
