Elementary School Milk Program

The goal of the Elementary School Milk Program (ESMP) is to make fresh, cold milk available at school for students to enjoy.

Schools get involved because milk helps give kids the nutrition and energy they need to concentrate and perform their best. The ESMP also helps foster school spirit and offers senior students hands-on business experience.

Key Program Facts:
  • The ESMP has been providing milk in schools across Ontario for over 25 years
  • Over 70% of the elementary schools in Ontario have registered
  • The ESMP makes fresh, cold milk available to almost 1 million students every day.
Milk Coordinators and ESMP volunteers help manage the program

Milk Coordinators can be anyone such as a parent, grandparent, teacher or staff member, who help make the ESMP a successful program for the school, convenient for the parents and fun for the students. ESMP volunteers and Milk Coordinators help place orders, supervise milk delivery, keep track of collections and payments, and organize program events like World School Milk Day.
