To create a program that addresses the food insecurity of middle and high school students, the Got Lunch program coordinators, worked together with members of the school staff and a group of students. After several months of planning, the Breakfast Club (the Jaffrey
Rindge Middle and High School Food Pantry) started operating in mid-January, 2019. It offers healthy food for lunches, snacks or to take home. Students have committed to volunteer their time during the school day to ensure the food is distributed as needed. Got Lunch volunteers will be working closely with the students and staff and adjust the program as needed.
Funding to develop and implement this program was provided by the Jaffrey Rindge Rotary Club.
