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 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 school staff led station, students will be invited to participate in helping make a smoothie and 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.
