The Special Milk Program (SMP) is an underutilized program that provides milk to children in public or nonprofit schools, residential child care institutions, and camps that do not participate in any other Federal child nutrition meal service program or any child at a participating school or half-day pre-kindergarten program can receive milk through the SMP. Administered by the Colorado Department of Education Office of School Nutrition, reimbursement is provided from the U.S Department of Agriculture for each half pint of milk served.
