Ending Childhood Hunger by Connecting Kids to School Nutritional Programs
43% of Maine students need school meals every day. How do we help them?
By working on boosting participation in school meals:
1. Increasing Access
Maine schools and organizations often need support to connect eligible kids
with the nutritious meals they need to learn, grow and thrive.
2. Removing Barriers
Full Plates Full Potential works to break down the barriers to food access that often exist
in schools by empowering them to change the way they serve their meals
and making food more accessible to hungry kids.
3. Investing in Our Schools
Full Plates Full Potential is investing critical funds and raising awareness in schools to help increase participation in USDA Child Nutrition programs that ultimately connect kids with the meals they need.
