Coming up next month, kids in Claremont will soon have a free lunch program that they can take advantage of to give them the boost that kids need. According to The Eagle Times, a new pilot program is slated to launch on June 20th that makes all children under the age of 18 eligible for free lunches at four different locations in the city.
This initiative is the product of a collaboration of multiple entities, including the Claremont School District, the Claremont Soup Kitchen, and the New Hampshire Food Bank. The program is ultimately being sponsored by the NH Food Bank, who receives funding from the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program.
For kids who are interested and may benefit from this new program, lunch will be served Monday through Friday all summer when school is not in session. Locations include the Maple Avenue School and the Claremont Soup Kitchen and lunch times vary based on location.
