Over One Millon Servings of Milk
Agriculture, Fisheries, Aquaculture & Forestry
School milk was made available through the Prince Edward Island School Milk Foundation which provides milk at the lowest possible prices to all Prince Edward Island schools. The Foundation also provides Island teachers with materials and programs that supplement the studentís nutrition education. This program is made possible through a partnership of Dairy Farmers of PEI, milk processors, and the provincial government.
The School Milk Foundation is looking forward to surpassing the one million mark again this year. The program will once again offer promotions and support to promote healthy eating in the schools.
