The Mission of the Got Lunch program in the Jaffrey Rindge community is to ensure that all children always have access to a healthy lunch.

This program was started in 2013 and is sponsored by the First Congregational Church and Society, UCC, in Rindge.  It is a volunteer run program funded through the generosity of individuals, local organizations, foundations and faith communities.  The program initially served children residing in Rindge, but in 2015 it was expanded to include Jaffrey as well. 

Since June of 2013 the Got Lunch program has provided meals to 195 children from 85 families residing in Jaffrey and Rindge. 

In 2016 Got Lunch deliveries were made to cover the week-long school breaks in February and April and the 11 weeks of summer vacation.  We will be delivering bags of groceries to cover the winter break at the end of December.The Mission of the Got Lunch program in the Jaffrey Rindge community is to ensure that all children always have access to a healthy lunch.

Summer 2016 Facts:

  • 104 children from 47 families enrolled in the summer program. 
  • 1,015 bags of groceries were delivered.  Average bag weight each week was between 25-30 pounds.
  • The bags contained a combined total of over 39,000 items weighing approximately 14,500 lbs.

                                                  Recognizing that many children in the Jaffrey-Rindge school district are dependent on the

                                                  healthy lunch program provided by the school to provide proper nutrition, but that no

                                                  such program existed while school was in recess, the First Congregational Church and

                                                  Society UCC put in place the Got Lunch Program.   Got Lunch deliveries first started

                                                  in the summer of 2013. 


Once a week, for the 10 weeks of summer vacation and during the winter break in December, children receive enough packaged food along with fresh fruits and vegetables to provide a minimum of 5 healthy lunches.  


Children are enrolled in the program by filling out a form and returning it to Rev. David Jadlocki, pastor of First Congregational Church and Society.  Forms are available through the school, public library, town social worker or the church.   Participation in the program is confidential.  The only individuals aware of names of the participants are Rev. Jadlocki and the church members who deliver the bags of food.  Forms for participation in the 2015 program will be available in Mid-May, 2015.
