The High School Milk Program is currently under construction and is not available for the 2022-23 school year. Updates will be provided when we have more information to share. High schools are not eligible to participate in the Recycle Right with Milk pilot.

Milk can be included as part of a safe and healthy school plan. To learn more, click here.

Milk delivery service to schools in rural Manitoba is not always available. Please refer to the Milk Delivery Services in Rural Manitoba list. If delivery service is not available, we encourage your school to get creative! Check with your local grocery store or restaurants to see if they will order milk for the school.

If your school meets the minimum number of students participating and is making milk available at least 3 times a week, you can absolutely run the program! If your school goes to grade 8, contact us to discuss the best option for your school.

If your school serves milk in cups from 1L, 2L or even 4L milk cartons/jugs, you can still participate in Recycle Right with Milk.

To figure out how many cartons of milk are handed out and recycled from larger cartons and/or jugs, please refer to the following conversions:

1L = 1000mL / 237ml = ~4 servings

2L = 2000mL / 237ml = ~8.5 servings

4L = 4000mL / 237ml = ~16.5 servings

The Recycle Right with Milk Program does not provide a subsidy for milk. Contact your school division to find out if nutrition support is available. Nourishment programs such as Child Nutrition Council of Manitoba may also be able to provide nutrition support for your school. For additional sources of funding, click here.

The Recycle Right with Milk Program does not supply milk to schools. The Program highlights milk as a nutritious choice available to students in the school.

The Recycle Right with Milk Program is brought to you by Dairy Farmers of Canada and is funded by Dairy Farmers of Manitoba.
