Due to the unique circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic,
ALL schools that registered for the 2019-2020 School Milk Program have been
auto-renewed for 2020-2021.
2020-21 School Year – We acknowledge that this school year will be different. Milk can be included as part of a safe and healthy back to school plan. To allow our schools time to adjust to their new school routine, the School Milk Program kit delivery and start will be delayed. School Milk Coordinators will be contacted to determine when their school feels ready to start the program.
New to the Program? Here’s how to register…
Registration begins in May and is available until December of the same year. All schools are encouraged to register before the beginning of the school year as this will ensure your School Milk kit and program information will arrive in September.
All schools are required to renew their registration each year.Register Today!
Nutrition is Essential for Learning
That’s why we invite you to join hundreds of schools across Manitoba in offering milk as part of healthy eating. Studies show students are more alert and ready to learn when they are well-nourished with a balance of foods, which includes milk.
