We are requesting parents fill out a survey in order to anticipate the number of meals needed. You can access the survey at bit.ly/2IPaDCv. If you are unable to access the form online you can call (319)526-3717 or (319)524-3690 for assistance. 

Meals will be prepared in our school facilities and are overseen by ServSafe Certified Food Service Staff. Approved procedures for meal prep, storage, service, and sanitation will be observed. 

While schools are closed, nutritionally balanced meals will be provided to all children 18 years and younger regardless of race, color, sex, disability, age, or national origin. Children are not required to be enrolled in Keokuk Schools to be eligible for this service; even if your child is open enrolled in another district or has not yet started school you may still participate. 

This program will be solely for the pick-up of meals, and meals will not be consumed on site. We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the school site once meals have been distributed, continue to wash your hands often, stay at home if you are sick and practice social distancing of 6ft.
