WE’RE WORKING HARD TO END CHILD HUNGER IN MAINE BY CONNECTING KIDS TO EFFECTIVE NUTRITION PROGRAMS LIKE SCHOOL BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND SUMMER MEALS AND MORE.
Work is accomplished through the Full Plates Full Potential network of non-profits, private citizens, government officials, business leaders, civic organizations, chefs, and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. Partners work together, implementing proven best practices that remove the barriers that keep kids from healthy food. Each plays a critical role in our ability to reach children with the meals they need to thrive where they live, learn and play. Each has a strategy that delivers nutritious food to the child wherever they are in order to remove barriers that keep them from accessing the available meals. Barriers like funds, stigma, time, and transportation.
