Earlier this summer, New Milford Mayor Pete Bass announced a plan to provide lunches to children in need. More than 1,400 lunches and 542 weekend packages were assembled this weekend. Bass thanked the volunteers, Clergy, and Angie Chastain for making the program a success. There are still five weeks before the school free and reduce priced lunch program kicks back in, and Bass says there's still a need. The program is totally funded by donations and run by volunteers.
