School Nutrition Program

In public schools in Maine, youth have access to free breakfast and lunch, which meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Although there is no charge, parents will be asked to complete the economic status questions during online registration as the data provided is used to determine our school funding, including Title 1 funds for special education programs, before/after and summer school programs; discounts on laptop insurance and internet; and teacher's student loan forgiveness.

Summer Nutrition

Are you eligible to receive $120 for each of your school-aged children?

Many children face hunger during the summer when they lose access to school meals.  This year there are several ways to combat summer hunger, including Summer EBT SUN Bucks ($120 per school-aged child), open meal sites for those 18 and younger, free food distributions through YouthFull Maine, and delivery meal service for those in rural areas.  Learn More:
