Milk in Schools
From the farm to the class, Fonterra Farmers across the country are working together to bring healthy, nutritious milk to kids across New Zealand through Fonterra Milk for Schools. It's free, and it's for all Kiwi kids in any primary school that would like to take part. Milk in Schools is provided four days per week in our classrooms for all students.
KidsCan currently support 485 schools throughout New Zealand. Our tangible programmes, Food for Kids, Shoes for Kids, Raincoats for Kids and Health for Kids concentrate on giving the basics directly to the children in need in partnership with the schools they attend.
