Let’s end child hunger together
We’ve been a champion for healthy, active kids for over 100 years. And now we’re taking on our biggest challenge yet as we work to end child hunger in Maine. Here’s how you can join our Giving Goodness campaign.
Together we can make sure lunch isn’t the last meal of the day
Oakhurst After School
Today, 80,000 Maine students (43%) rely on school meals to get the nutrition they need. Many leave for the day wondering if lunch was their last meal of the day. 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.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP
Donate to Full Plates Full Potential
Full Plates Full Potential is a Maine-based nonprofit that works with schools to help end child hunger. Through increased access and investments, their goal is the same all of us have—to make sure every child in Maine has food on the table.
Spread the Word
The more people you tell about Oakhurst After School, the more everyone can get behind it. Let’s work together to help 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 Maine kids get the fuel they need.
4H helps makes sure that every child has the support and experience to make the most of their abilities, encouraging leadership and empowering them to improve the world around them.
Since 1921, Oakhurst has dedicated millions of dollars to support programs and organizations in Maine communities that nurture healthy active kids and a healthy environment.
