Committed to Youth in Maine
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.
Youth Full Maine manages school food pantries and distributes fresh produce for students to bring home for themselves and their family members. We have already served over 1,200 youth. Our mission is to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in York County, Maine.
