When you need a helping hand and a good meal, GOT LUNCH, Newington is dedicated to being there for you and your family! We know things get tough and, during the summer months, it can be hard to make ends meet when the kids aren't in school. GOT LUNCH, Newington has you covered!
Welcome to GOT LUNCH, Newington
Welcome to GOT LUNCH Newington!!
GOT LUNCH Newington is a collaboration of community partners coming together to feed the children of Newington during the summer months. Working together are religious institutions, The HAT team (Hunger Action team) businesses, non-profits and individuals throughout Newington, all helping to feed the children in this community.
GOT LUNCH Newington recognizes that there are many children in our community who are in need. We are focused on feeding children healthy food during the summer months.
School statistics state that currently, on average, 22% of Newington’s school aged children qualify for free and reduced-priced lunches. When school is not in session these children most likely are missing at least one meal per day.
We need your help! Please consider donating and sponsoring a child or donate your time and volunteer!
