Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes Receives $5,000 Grant from MVSB Fund

MEREDITH — Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes was selected as one of thirteen local non-profit organizations to receive a grant from the Meredith Village Savings Bank Charitable Fund in 2014. The $5,000 grant will help the organization with the cost of food and enable them to provide dairy vouchers to each participating family.

Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes provides summer lunch supplies to the families of Inter-Lakes School District students, many of which would normally qualify for free and reduced-price lunches at school during the school year. In its first year, 2013, the organization provided healthy lunches to 142 children and they expect to serve 150 children this year. Each Monday throughout the summer, a week's worth of lunch food items are packed and delivered by volunteers to participating families in Meredith, Center Harbor and Sandwich.

"Adding a third meal into a tight food budget can be quite a burden for a family," said Christine Hodecker-George, Chair for Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes. "So having lunch taken care of during the summer, allows these families to focus more on preparing and providing nutritious meals for breakfast and dinner."

Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes was formed in 2012 with the mission to provide healthy lunches to the students of the Inter-Lakes School District that find themselves in need during the 9 to 10 weeks of summer recess. The organization is a volunteer collaborative effort of residents, town departments, businesses and civic organizations residing or doing business in the three towns served by the Inter-Lakes School District: Meredith, Center Harbor and Sandwich. For more information, contact Christine Hodecker-George, Chair, Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes at gallery 51, 279-3123 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

How many different vegetables are sold at the market? What is an Aunt Molly's ground cherry? Do they taste more like melon or pineapple? Does a kale smoothie really taste good? Parents and children will find the answers to these questions and more when they visit the market. Children can feed the worms in a worm farm, and create a mini Sunflower Shoot garden to take home. The tent will be open rain or shine, and participation is free. The Savor the Season tent is sponsored by the Lakes Region Food Network, with support from the Laconia Main Street Marketplace.
