Food & Nutrition Program

In 2017, we served 62,840 meals to over 3,000 members.

500 pounds of fresh produce and 50 dozen eggs were given to families in need.

85% of all our meals are made from scratch.

Creating Healthy Living Skills

In order to fulfill our mission of developing healthy living skills and habits among our members, the Club implemented a Food and Nutrition Program that incorporates healthy, balanced meals and snacks, nutrition education, and culinary arts training programs that help develop personal and professional abilities in kitchen safety and the culinary arts.

We make sure every kid that comes through our door has everything they need to be successful. This starts with having their basic needs met which includes a nutritious meal.

Through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and through the generosity of our donors, we provide meals and snacks to all children.

All members eat free of charge all year long.

During the school year, lunch is served from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua also participates in the Summer Food Service Program. Both breakfast and lunch are FREE TO ALL children under 19.

Summer meals and snacks are served 7:30 am to 9:30 am and 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.

Our food program is a 4 week rotational seasonal menu that uses local produce, features 3 vegetarian meals a week, and celebrates cultural foods. We work hard to ensure every Club member is given quality care and ample opportunity to improve their physical and emotional health.

After doing a community service project at the Nashua Soup Kitchen, a group of teens wanted to do more! They created a video intended to give instructions on how to create a healthy meal using ingredients families can get through the soup kitchen.
