Starting Monday, students will have access to free meals through a partnership with Ottumwa Schools, the Ottumwa YMCA, Bridge View Center, and The Bridge Church.

Twelve locations have initially been established to provide a Grab & Go option for students. All meals will be available for approximately 10 minutes at each location, with the exception of Bridge View Center, which will have pick up available for one hour. 

Students can walk to the location closest to their home or they can arrive by car. Students must be present to receive a meal due to federal reimbursement requirements. Parents can’t pick up meals for other children. Meals are only available for children ages 2-18.
