MEREDITH — Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes is currently accepting applications for families who are in need of food assistance during the summer of 2014. All applications are due by Monday, June 2.
Got Lunch! Inter-lake’s mission is to provide a nutritious lunch for the students of the Inter-Lakes school system that find themselves in need during the summer recess. Got Lunch is a volunteer, collaborative effort of individuals, faith and civic based organizations, local businesses and town and school officials, working together, to make sure that there is no child in the community that goes hungry during the summer months.
Although the program targets the population of students that quality for free or reduced lunch prices during the school year this is not a requirement. Got Lunch! recognizes that there are times when families may need a little help, therefore there is no required proof of financial need to participate.
Each week, beginning on Monday, June 23 volunteers will pack a week’s supply of healthy lunch groceries that will be delivered to your home for the full nine weeks that school is not in session. This year the program will also include a $5 dairy voucher.
