NTU Supports Meals Matter

NASHUA, NH November 16, 2018 – At their November 13th meeting, the Nashua Teachers’ Union Board of Directors unanimously approved a motion to support the new Meals Matter program.

Meals Matter, a program started by students at Nashua High School South, was formed to help classmates who are not able to afford to purchase lunch and do not qualify for free or reduced lunch. Nashua Teachers’ Union President Adam Marcoux said, “we were moved by their presentation. Here we have a group of students forming a non-profit to help feed their fellow classmates. Our future is bright with leaders like this growing up right in front of us. The Nashua Teachers’ Union is proud to support this cause led by students, supported by their teachers, Lisa Yates and Suzanne Winters. We look forward to watching this group work to help not only the students at South, but eventually students across the district.”

Marcoux presented a check for $1,000.00 to the Meals Matter students during one of the lunch blocks at South on Monday, November 19th. At that time, Meals Matter was holding a fund raiser – tape a teacher to the wall.

To donate, checks can be made out and sent to the United Way of Greater Nashua with Meals Matter in the memo section; you can text mealsmatter to 41444; or you can donated online: https://app.mobilecause/com/form/yBydpw?vid=3kki
