School Milk Program

The Ontario Elementary School Milk Program, which ensures that Ontario students enjoy the nutritional benefits of cold, fresh milk at lunch every day, has been operating for 20 years and is administered by Dairy Farmers of Canada. The program runs in 2800 schools representing 70% of all schools in the province. Run by volunteers in each school, the program provides turnkey administrative support, financing for school fridges, educational materials, promotional materials and contests.

The program offers many rewarding benefits. Milk gives children nutrition that improves concentration, energy-levels & learning performance. Parents enjoy the assurance that there is a healthy lunch drink option at school. And, it fosters school spirit and offers senior students hands-on experience.
