The Elementary School Milk Program (ESMP)
First introduced in 1986, the ESMP is committed to providing elementary students with milk on a daily basis, so they can stay healthy, alert and ready to learn. Since its inception, millions of children have benefited from this program with the help of thousands of volunteers and people in the dairy industry.
Participating in the ESMP provides an opportunity for students to develop a healthy habit of drinking milk while making it fun and rewarding. Children who consume milk at lunch are more likely to meet their bone-building nutritional needs.
Schools registered for the ESMP will receive:
- All the information needed to run the program
- Free milk rewards plus an easy way to receive more!
- Free posters
- Milk coordinator support with online resources and newsletters
