Fund Local FAQ

Feed a child. Build a future.

Last year every dollar donated to Full Plates Full Potential helped connect a child in need to 36 meals. Launch a program at your school today to help donors connect their dollars to your students.

Launch an Alternative Breakfast Program at Your School

We are enormously excited to invite you to create a proposal to receive up to $5,000 in funding to help launch an alternative breakfast program and boost your school breakfast participation. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis, so if you aren’t ready to pitch your idea today, please know that we encourage you to come back and apply just as soon as you are ready.

What we’re looking for?

  • Programs that plan to adopt best practices
  • Schools with a need for funds
  • Clear intent to collaborate with internal and external partners.

Who may apply?

Any equal opportunity non-profit organization, school or municipality located within Maine, or other group addressing food insecurity among low-income children in Maine.

When will my Campaign go live?

Great question! As soon as you press the submit button on your application a member of our team will be notified. Depending on how many applications were received before yours, it may take a couple of days up to a couple of weeks (at most) for a team member to reach out. A member of our Leadership Council will contact you with any clarifying questions (not to worry this is just to make sure we get everything buttoned up before your campaign is launch) or to simply notify you that everything looks great and to inform you when your campaign is going live. And because we are just as committed to making sure your students get the food they need as soon as possible we will also provide valuable tips on how you can prepare to make your campaign a true success story.
