Description:

Request a Grant Writer

In-kind support to Iowa schools to replace water fountains with water bottle filling stations. Students and staff will also receive toothbrushes and reusable water bottles. The purpose of the program is to help keep staff and students hydrated and improve their oral and general health.

Schools that are selected for the Rethink Your Drink program will have an old drinking fountain replaced with a new Elkay water fountain/bottle filling station.

Priority will be given to:
- Communities with optimally fluoridated water,
- Schools that have the highest rates of free and reduced price lunch, and
- Schools that do not already have a water bottle filling station installed in their building.

New in 2019, all schools that receive a new water bottle filling station will also receive a Rethink Your Drink educational kit, designed to demonstrate the importance of drinking water in an fun and engaging way. The educational kit includes:
- Lesson plans
- Age appropriate activities and worksheets for Kindergarten through 12th grade
- “The Sugar Story” book recommended for Kindergarten-2nd grade
- Interactive Drink Displays
- USB Drive containing all electronic copies of worksheets, letters, games and videos
