Child drinking from water bottle

Rethink Your Drink

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. Access to an online Rethink Your Drink educational kit is also provided to assist in educating your school on the importance of drinking water.

Please note, newly eligible in this year's round of grants are schools that have already received one Rethink Your Drink grant and may now apply for an additional station. Priority will be given to:

  • Schools that have the highest rates of free and reduced price lunch and
  • Schools that have one or fewer water bottle filling station installed in their building.

Rethink Your Drink is supported by the Healthiest State Initiative, Iowa Department of Public Health Bureau of Nutrition and Health Promotion, Iowa Public Health Association, Iowa Department of Education, and In Depth Marketing. Applications for 2021 closed on February 5, 2021.
