Make a Difference

There a many ways you can help children who are at risk of going without food. You can change their lives with one donation.

Special Gifts

Feeding large numbers of people requires some specialized equipment. We currently need a pallet jack, large tables for food sorting, building insulation, and drywall. Please email or call (207) 391-0185 to donate special gifts.

Recycle with Clynk

If you recycle bottles and cans with Clynk, you can choose to donate all or part of your Clynk balance to YFM by logging into your Clynk account and clicking "Donate". Or, you can email us at to request bags and tags that will automatically attribute your recyclables to YFM.

Food is purchased in bulk by YFM from its fundraising efforts, but over 75% of the food YFM provides is donated from business and individual food drives, community food pantries, and produce from local farms and markets. Youth Full Maine partners with Good Shepherd Food Bank to access more donated and discounted dry goods and local produce.

If you have food you would like to donate or if you would like to put on a food drive, click the "Give Food" heading above to check our requirements and needs.
