The Waukee Community Schools Nutrition Services Department will provide an opportunity for families to pick up free breakfast and lunch for children under the age of 18. This will go until August 6, 2021.

In an effort to ease the burden on Iowa families and get food out to the students who need it at this critical time, the Iowa Department of Education has received a waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provides flexibility for schools and organizations distributing meals through the Summer Food Service Program during the COVID-19 outbreak. Effective immediately, children do not have to be present when caregivers pick up meals.

Parents and caregivers will be asked to share the school name where each child attends, if they are of school age.
