Overview

The Special Milk Program (SMP) provides milk to children in schools and non-profit childcare institutions that do not participate in other Federal child nutrition meal service programs. Schools in the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs may also participate in the SMP to provide milk to children in half-day pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs where children do not have access to the school meal programs. The program reimburses institutions for the milk they serve.
