Owatonna Students Get Free Lunch (& Breakfast) All Summer
All kids in Owatonna up to age 18 are able to get free breakfast and lunch meal bundles this summer. The Owatonna Public Schools Nutrition Services Department announces the offering will begin June 7 and run through August 13. No need to sign up. Just show up at one of four locations during the scheduled times.
Meal bundles for multiple days will be available twice a week and are intended to cover a Monday through Friday period. There is no charge for students' meals.

The school district recently held a groundbreaking for the new high school, which is scheduled to open in the fall on 2023. Community dignitaries, chamber of commerce members and even future graduates on the new school moved a few shovelfuls of dirt that day. The bigger equipment has taken over since then.
