Mayor of NH city announces plan to feed poor students during summer months

NASHUA — Mayor Jim Donchess announced Thursday the new launch of a "Meals For Kids" program designed to provide food for needy Nashua children.

Donchess referenced the new program in his State of the City address in February, and it will involve a partnership between the Mayor's Office, Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, the United Way of Greater Nashua and other local organizations.

"When I took office, I committed to work hard to ensure Nashua was a great place to live, work and play," Donchess said. "Childhood food insecurity erodes each of those goals and has consequences that are far reaching in our community."

For Nashua, childhood hunger is a constant problem, with more than 43 percent of public school children receiving either reduced or free lunch at school. The new "Meals For Kids" pilot targets children who would receive meals in school, but can't because school will be out for the summer.

The Executive Director of the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, Michael Reinke, showed hope for the program.

"Together, we can find an answer and make Nashua a city where every child can be secure in knowing there is enough food to eat,” Reinke said.

Our 2107 Backpacks for Back to school webpage lists what's needed and many volunteer opportunities.
