Recognizing that there is a need to provide healthy meals for the weekends, the Got Lunch leadership and school personnel at the Rindge Memorial School and put in place a weekend meals pilot program. It was quickly evident that a need existed and that the pilot program was able to successfully address the need. In the fall of 2017 the Health Kids Weekend Bags program was established in the elementary schools. The school staff identifies the children who would benefit from the program and distribute bags of groceries each Friday that school is in session. Either the students or the parents take the bags home. This program is confidential and the identity of the students participating is only known by the school staff.
