Proceeds from our events will support these organizations which are dedicated to fighting hunger in Maine and the No Kid Hungry campaign:

Cultivating Community

Cultivating Community teaches organic and sustainable farming practices to grow food in school gardens, community spaces, and partnering farms to feed the most vulnerable in Maine.

Opportunity Alliance

Opportunity Alliance’s East End Kids Katering Summer Food Program collaborates with numerous community partners and volunteers to provide nutritious and accessible meals to children during the summer months when school is out. We are now providing over 1,200 lunches daily to children in our community at 20 locations. Through 50 integrated programs and services, The Opportunity Alliance envisions contributing meaningfully to a community in which families and individuals are thriving and supported as they pursue their aspirations for a better life. Within The Opportunity Alliance, there is a shared belief that positive change is possible.

Good Shepherd Food Bank

Good Shepherd Food Bank's mission is to provide food for those experiencing food insecurity by soliciting surplus food and serving as an umbrella organization for food distribution to non-profit programs and food pantries throughout Maine.

Preble Street Teen Center

Preble Street Teen Center is the hub of services for homeless and runaway youth, providing immediate access and an acclaimed service coordination model. The Center helps to meet immediate needs by providing warmth and safety, nutritious meals, clothing, and crisis intervention.

No Kid Hungry 

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength's No Kid Hngry Campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.
