The updated 2021-2022 program manual has all information about the Feeding Our Kids program including standard guidelines and procedures. Please use this as your primary reference guide and overview of the program.
Parental or guardian consent is needed for children to receive food bags. It is preferred to get written consent using this form. However, if that proves difficult, consent may be given via email or phone call. Email/verbal consent can also be used for initial consent early in the year, but written consent should still be requested.
All consent, written or verbal, must be tracked. You can use this template spreadsheet to record parental consent. (If you already have another method, that is fine. The important thing is that there is a record of each child’s parental/guardian consent.) Copies of consent forms should be kept on hand so they can be found easily if needed.
CRITICAL NOTE: Remember that these records are for the school to keep. DO NOT send any records or identifying information to Feeding Our Kids. This is in order to maintain confidentiality of the children & families.
Whenever you need to update the number of children that need food bags at your school, please use this google form. You can submit the form whenever you need, but please try to only do so once between deliveries to avoid confusion. Increase requests are subject to restrictions explained on the form.
