When school ends, the need for a healthy lunch doesn't.
Winchester Got Lunch (WGL), located in Winchester, Massachusetts, is a 501c3 non-profit volunteer organization. The mission of Winchester Got Lunch is to provide healthy lunches during the summer to Winchester students who rely on subsidized lunches during the school year.
A federally subsidized school year lunch program provides nutritional lunches to more than 220 Winchester students who qualify for assistance. In the summer, these children lose access to these healthy meals. Winchester Got Lunch extends the nutritional support through the summer by providing a weekly bag of free lunch foods to families with children who request and qualify assistance.
