The Special Milk Program was established to encourage consumption of fluid milk by children in the United States in:
- Nonprofit schools of high school grade and under, which do not participate in National School Lunch, School Breakfast, Special Milk Program, or Summer Food Service Program (except participation of nonprofit schools in the special milk program shall not apply to split-session kindergarten programs conducted in schools in which children do not have access to the meal service program operating in schools the children attend) and
- Nonprofit nursery schools, child care centers, settlement houses, summer camps, and similar nonprofit institutions devoted to the care and training of children, which do not participate in a meal service program

Special Milk - Nonpricing program
Nonpricing program means a program which does not sell milk to children. This shall include any such program in which children are normally provided milk, along with food and other services, in a school or child-care institution financed by a tuition, boarding, camping or other fee, or by private donations or endowments.

All children receive milk at no cost to the child. The agency claims the general rate of reimbursement for each 1/2 pint of milk served to children.

Special Milk Program-Pricing Program:
Pricing program means a program which sells milk to children. This shall include any such program in which maximum use is made of Program reimbursement payments in lowering, or reducing to ‘‘zero,’’ wherever possible, the price per half pint which children would normally pay for milk.

The local agency establishes the price for the milk.
Option 1: The agency serves milk to all children at the same price. All children are charged for milk; no benefits for those that qualify for free milk. The agency claims the general rate of reimbursement for each 1/2 pint of milk served to children.
Option 2: The agency serves milk free to children eligible to receive free milk and charges the agency's established rate to other children. The agency claims the general rate of reimbursement for each 1/2 pint of milk served to children who do not qualify, and the average cost of a 1/2 pint of milk for children who are eligible for free milk.


This program is available for students enrolled in accredited schools which do not offer a federal school meal program or half day preschool program that do not participate in a federal school meal program. It is also open to preschool programs and summer camps.

Numbered policy/instruction memos:
USDA releases numbered policy memos which govern the programs in addition to the laws, regulations, and guidance manuals. The legislaion, regulations and policy memos can be found under its respective program on the USDA website. South Dakota no longer relases the numbered memos separately. Announcements are provided through email, bulletins, and newsletters with reference to the appropriate USDA website.

Memos released by South Dakota will be retained on this website.
