The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically limited access to fresh food for many at-risk students. Learn more about the effects of COVID-19 on youth in Maine and see how we're addressing the problem.

Hunger and food insecurity affect 1 in 5 children in Maine - 49,728 youth are food insecure in Maine alone. Food insecurity affects children’s ability to learn and to develop. This can have serious implications for a child's health outcomes and future economic prosperity.
