2024 Summer Meal Distribution program

Posted Date: 5/09/24 (3:05 PM)

Dear Families,

We are excited to announce the continuation of our Summer Meal Distribution program for 2024. This program is designed to ensure that all children ages 18 and younger can receive nutritious meals throughout the summer at no cost.

Distribution Schedule: Meals will be distributed every Thursday from 2:00 PM, starting May 30 through August 15, 2024. Please note that due to the July 4th holiday, the distribution for that week will occur on Wednesday, July 3rd.

Locations: You can drive up or walk up to any of the following sites to receive meals:

  • Ottumwa High School: 501 E 2nd (4th St side)
  • Evans Jr. High: 812 Chester
  • Taft Apartments: 100 Taft Circle
  • Eisenhower Elementary: 2624 Marilyn Road
  • JBS Meat Processing: 100 Iowa Ave

Meal Collection: Children are not required to be present to receive meals. However, if a child is not present, you will need to verify their eligibility. This helps us ensure that we are serving our community efficiently and maintaining the integrity of the program.

Eligibility: All children ages 18 and younger are welcome to participate. There are no income requirements or registration necessary.

We are proud to say that this institution is an equal opportunity provider. We are committed to ensuring that every child has access to healthy meals, especially during the summer months when school meals are not available.
