NAUGATUCK OFFERS FREE LUNCH PROGRAM

 

NAUGATUCK, Conn.; June 28, 2016 — The Naugatuck Board of Education is helping to provide the community with free accessible meals for those ages 18 and younger.

 

Volunteers kicked off the annual summer food resource program on Friday, June 24, at Naugatuck High School. Volunteers then headed out across town to promote the program and make sure all residents know about the service.

 

The meal service runs June 27- Aug. 19 and are available at the following locations on weekdays 11:30 am - 12:30 pm:

  • Andrew Avenue Elementary
  • Hop Brook Elementary
  • Salem Elementary
  • Legion Field

And at the following locations 11:15 am to 12:15 pm:

The program is in partnership with End Hunger Connecticut!, a statewide anti-hunger and food security organization that serves as a comprehensive anti-hunger resource for policymakers, community organizations, and low-income families. The work of EHC! is vital to the visibility and coordination of various federal food assistance programs that are meant to lower the prevalence of food insecurity and hunger. The goal of EHC! is to improve the levels of food security and nutrition among Connecticut families while creating and supporting policies that move families toward self-sufficiency.
