More than 80,000 Maine kids are facing the prospect of a very hungry summer. Even before the COVID-19 crisis, 73% of Maine kids were not able to access summer meals programs. Today, with 130,000 Mainers unemployed, significantly more kids are at risk. Full Plates Full Potential has established a Summer Meals Emergency Fund to support any summer meals program in Maine serving meals during this difficult summer. This funds helps summer meals programs pay for increased expenses associated with pandemic related safety protocols including packaging for breakfast and lunch meals, transportation to satellite sites, home delivery, and more. If you can, please donate today to help ensure no child goes hungry this summer.
Please give so Maine kids may access healthy meals this summer!

Summer meal sites provide reliable, nutritious meals to any child who needs them - all summer long.
