Let's End Child
At Oakhurst Dairy, we’ve been a champion for healthy, active kids nearly 100 years running.
And now we are taking on our biggest challenge yet, ending child hunger in Maine. Keep scrollin’ to find out how you can help.
Let's Make Sure Lunch Isn't the Last Meal of the Day
Today, 80,000 Maine students (43%) rely on school meals to get the nutrition they need. Many leave for the day wondering if that is their last meal until tomorrow. As part of our Giving Goodness commitment, Oakhurst is teaming up with Full Plates Full Potential and donating $300,000 to ensure Maine schools are able to create a way to provide Maine students an after-school meal at the end of the day.
How can I help?
Spread the Word
The more people you tell about Oakhurst After School, the more everyone can get behind this unique partnership helping to end child hunger in Maine.
Be an Oakhurst Family
When you give your family Oakhurst, you’re doing more than giving them the best milk and creams around—you’re also contributing to the communities around the entire state of Maine. And now with the Oakhurst After School program, you’re specifically helping make sure our kids get the fuel they need.
We’re in this together!
When it comes to community, the more you give, the more you get. And since our founding in 1921, Oakhurst has dedicated millions of dollars to support programs and organizations that nurture healthy active kids and a healthy environment in our communities. Whether we’re helping to get kids moving at the Beach to Beacon Kid’s Fun Run, or encouraging confidence in tomorrow’s leaders at programs like 4H, our pledge to donate to organizations that promote healthy, active kids and a healthy environment is the cornerstone of our community involvement.
