Festival Contributes to Feeding Children Participating in Summer Enrichment Programs
Each summer, Regional School Unit 13 does a wonderful job providing recreational and educational programs in several locations around the area. Audrey Lovering explained that many children arrive at the programs without a lunch. Some of the children leave home without having had breakfast. The schools are able to provide a meal program with the help of the United States Department of Agriculture. Unfortunately, getting the meals prepared and distributed to the various locations has been identified as a problem.
In response, the Maine Lobster Festival contributed $1000.00 toward making sure kids are well nourished while participating in summer programs.
