The Special Milk Program provides unflavored/flavored fat-free or
unflavored low-fat milk to children in schools and
childcare institutions who do not participate in other Federal meal
service programs. The program reimburses schools for the milk they serve.
Schools in the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs may
also participate in the Special Milk Program to provide milk to children in half-day
pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs where children do not have
access to the school meal programs.
