Smoothie Making Station Grant

Hosting a health fair?

The School Milk Program wants to help your school celebrate nutrition!

Highlight a powerful bone building snack at your student health fair by including a “Smoothie Making Station”. Here, students can learn and experience how to include milk in a simple, but satisfying snack.

Apply to the School Milk Program to receive up to a $100 grant for your Smoothie Making Station. At this hands-on school staff led station, students will be invited to participate in helping make a smoothie. Samples will be available for all students to try. Only 10 School Milk Program Smoothie Making Station grants are available per year. Requests are considered on a first come first serve basis.

Successful applicants will receive a confirmation email from the School Milk Program. Grant money will only be provided following the event, upon submitting proof of receipt for the smoothie station groceries and sample cups.

• Your school must currently be on the School Milk Program (SMP).
• School must have a student population greater than 100 students. Smaller schools interested in applying, please contact us.

• The smoothie making station experience must include the opportunity for students to be hands on with making the smoothie or have an opportunity to see how the smoothie is made.
•Milk and yogurt must be included in the recipe (an exception is permitted for a dairy free batch for a student(s) who is allergic to dairy. All other batches must include milk and yogurt. Schools are required to notify SMP of any dairy substitutions.). For an example smoothie recipe, click here.
