CLAREMONT, NH–The Children’s Community Lunch Coalition, consisting of the NH Food Bank, Claremont Soup Kitchen, SAU#6, ReThinkHealth:UCRV and Claremont community leaders, has come together to ensure that all children in Claremont have access to free and healthy lunches during the summer when school is out. This year is a pilot year culminating in months of planning and implementing the program which organizers hope serves children in Claremont for years to come. Anyone 18 and younger is welcome to join friends at one of four locations, Monday through Friday, starting on June 20, and running through September 2 (Closed on July 4th). Claremont Middle School (107 South Street), Maple Avenue School (210 Maple Ave.), and One-4-All Family Space (corner of Main and Elm streets) will be serving from noon to 1:00 pm. The Claremont Soup Kitchen (53 Central Street) will be serving from 12:30 – 1:30pm.
Maple Avenue School Principal Dan Cherry said that with school getting out early this year and not starting again until after Labor Day, “There will be 12 weeks before kids go back to school. Some children have two meals a day at school. We know there are a lot of children in need.”
