About SMF

Our School Milk Program currently operates in over 240 schools across the province. In fact, there’s a good chance that your neighbourhood or community school is already part of our program. Our school milk comes in specially packaged cartons—and at a specially low price—to make sure all students get their best shot at a happy, healthy future.


The School Milk Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador is an organization which exists to enhance the health and well-being of school aged children in this province through milk promotion.

Our milk is available in:
1% and 2%
250ml or 500ml
White (2% MF only) or chocolate (1% MF only)

We work with the cream of the crop.

The School Milk Foundation has two full time office staff, one part-time staff member, as well as an independent Board of Directors.  Our board has representatives from local dairy producers and processors, and the Provincial Government (in the areas of Education and Health).

Our foundation relies on funding and in-kind contributions from Dairy Farmers of Newfoundland and Labrador, Saputo Ltd., Agropur Dairy Cooperative, and the Provincial Department of Fisheries, Forestry, and Agriculture.

Nearly half of our lifetime bone mass is built and consolidated during our adolescent and teen years, so it’s important for children to get much calcium as they possibly can. And milk is the easiest—and most delicious—way for children to get 15 essential nutrients (including calcium) that will help them grow healthy and strong.
