Mobilizing Milk Stations

Set up milk stations – with rolling coolers – for easier access during classroom meal delivery. You’ll simplify the distribution process and keep milk cold throughout the serving period.

Remember, students drink more milk – and get more of the nine essential nutrients – if you serve it to them COLD! Always strive for 35 degrees for storage and delivery of milk. Download valuable tips below!

Hot Chocolate Milk for Students

Throughout this unprecedented school year, American Dairy Association North East has been supporting School Nutrition Directors with keeping students engaged and excited about school meals. To achieve this, we’ve helped schools implement new menu items such as Hot Chocolate Milk, an item students love with meals.


Make hot chocolate milk one part of the grab & go options on kiosks, while providing prepackaged meals to your students.

Pre-pour hot chocolate milk cups for easy student retrieval. Use a program-branded dispenser to help market this item throughout the school day.
