  • School Meal Information for the 2017-18 School Year

    Program Goal: Provide nutritious, appetizing meals for students at a reasonable price in a pleasant environment.

    The Child Nutrition Program offers nutritious breakfasts and lunches at every school building. Proper nutrition is fundamental for the success of academic programs. Our meals meet the USDA Nutrition Standards, which require the following:

    • Age-appropriate calorie limits
    • Daily servings of both vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving)
    • A wide variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
    • Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
    • Whole grains
    • Less sodium

    Free and Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Changes for the 2017-18 School Year

    What: There have been changes to the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) which provided free lunch and breakfast for all students this school year. Next school year students whose families don’t meet the guidelines for free and reduced lunch will pay.

    If any family member receives food assistance or FIP, your students may already be approved for free meals. Watch for a letter from Davenport Community Schools in late July notifying you that your student(s) have already been approved based on your participation in these federal/state assistance programs. If you receive this notification letter, no further action is required.

    Why: Participation in these programs is on the decline meaning we are unable to continue the all-student-meals-at-no-charge at McKinley. 

    Families that do not participate in state assistance programs, such as Food Assistance, who wish to receive free or reduced price meals in 2017-2018, will need to complete the online meal application available beginning July 27, 2017. Food Service team members will be available during on-site registration to help families with the application process.

     Returning to “regular” meal service will mean students are required to state their name or enter their student ID at the cash register during meal service.  Letters home will come soon.If a meal application is necessary, it may now be completed online at https://www.myschoolapps.com/ . Families will receive a letter confirming meal benefit status after the application is processed.  Cash payment for meals is expected until the confirmation letter is issued (See   My School Bucks Online Payment System for online deposits to your child’s meal account).  If a paper meal benefit application is preferred, contact the District’s Food & Nutrition Services (FNS) Department, 1008 West Kimberly Rd., 563-336-7430, between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

    Free or reduced price meals cannot be provided without prior approval. You may apply at any time during the school year if your household size goes up, income goes down, or if you start getting Food Assistance, FIP, or other benefits. If you lose your job, your children may be able to get free or reduced price meals. The reduced price breakfast is $.30 and the reduced price lunch is $.40 for all grade levels.

    For questions or assistance contact Anne, 563-336-7430 or averya@mail.davenport.k12.ia.us.

    Requests for meal modifications / special diets

    If your child has dietary restrictions such as an allergy to certain foods, please fill out a Diet Modification Request  and submit it to your school’s office/nurse.
