How do we drive change?

We work to ensure that no Maine child grows up hungry by:

Increasing Access

We support Maine schools and non-profit organizations in their efforts to feed kids the nutritious meals they need to learn, grow and thrive.

Removing Barriers

Full Plates Full Potential works to identify and break down barriers to food access faced by too many children. We share and promote best practices proven to connect more kids with more meals.

Making Investments

By empowering child nutrition programs with the tools and funding they need to change their food service models, Full Plates helps increase meal access for all Maine kids.

Advocating for Lasting Solutions

We advocate for systemic change in child nutrition programs at the state and federal level with the goal of making Maine the first state in the nation to end child hunger once and for all.

In Portland, many students struggle with homelessness and food insecurity. Before we received our grant, many students would leave school hungry and may not have anything to eat again until school breakfast the next morning. Now we are able to serve a SuperSnack to nearly 400 students afterschool everyday!
