Founded in 2018, G☺T LUNCH! Newport (GLN) helps fill the gap when school vacations leave children without nutritious meals at home.
Since June 2018, GLN has served 173 different families with 373 children.
(as of December 2022)
GLN delivers bagged groceries once per week during regular school breaks. Its rotating menu includes breakfast cereal, sandwich ingredients, vegetables, fruits, bread and dairy products, pasta and sauce, rice, etc. Each weekly delivery also includes a recipe and ingredients for at least one family meal.
Thanks to our donors and volunteers, in 2022 GLN served families from Newport, Goshen, Grantham, Lempster, Sunapee and Unity with 13 regular deliveries and 25 emergency food boxes for those in urgent need.
