Got Lunch! for Inter-Lakes and Moultonboro

Got Lunch! is a collaboration of community partners coming together to provide free lunch during the summer break for children of both Interlakes and now Moultonboro who sign up for the program. 
Last year the Got Lunch team provided more than 5,000 lunches over the summer  for 150 children of Meredith, Sandwich and Center Harbor. This year they expect to provide lunch for an additional 75 children from Moultonboro. 
The food is acquired through food drives and monetary donations .
Each Monday morning volunteers pack individual bags which contain five days of nutritional lunches and two person teams  deliver the lunch bags to the children who pre- registered during the school year. The mission is to reach youth who get healthy lunches through school and government programs during the school year, but who might not eat as well at home during the almost-three months of summer vacation. The first delivery day will be June 22nd. 
The cost to feed each child for the summer is $120. 
To volunteer or to make a donation of food or money please contact Jim or Jane Gregoire at 603-677-7494 or via email: gregadv@yahoo.com  or ringer0519@yahoo.com.
You can also send donations with checks payable to St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church to:

Paul, I'm not sure all this information is correct. I believe the Lakes region food pantry is running this program for Moultonboro with the help/support of Interlakes got lunch. I believe Moultonboro kids would get vouchers to use to buy healthy food at Heaths or Hannafords. This is a great program and a good way to make sure all kids have food on the table even when they are not in school.

Anon- you are correct. The flyer I'm looking at states that a donation will also fund a donation to the Moultonboro Food Pantry's summer food voucher program. Thank you for the clarification.
