Community Service Opportunity An Easy/Fun Opportunity to Earn Credits For Community Service WHEN? Saturday morning, April 9, 2016, 9:15 to 11:15 WHERE? First Parish Church, 116 Main Street, Yarmouth WHAT? Packaging vacuum-sealed meals for hungry children in northern rural Maine. Sitting or standing at an assembly line and pouring, for example, a cup of macaroni or soy into a plastic bag with 44 other people: men, women, adults, and students. WHY? One out of four children in Maine worry about not having enough food to eat each day. Northern rural towns in Maine have few, if any, food pantries; transportation and spoilage create huge problems. July and August are critical months, because hungry children in northern rural Maine have no breakfast or lunch available at school. Usually it takes until age 25 for one’s brain to develop fully. With so many hungry children, what does this say about their brain development? What about the quality of Maine’s high school graduates? For only 25 cents, Kids Care Food Program can provide supplies for a nourishing meal. The meals are vacuum sealed; therefore, the shelf life for the meals is two years. There are three options for Kids Care meals: a vegetable/rice casserole, a bean/rice meal, and a macaroni and cheese dinner. All meals are fortified with protein, vitamins, and minerals. Actually, 45 people can package 10,000 vacuum-sealed meals in two hours. Later, the Good Shepherd Food Bank will transport the packaged meals to its Brewer warehouse for distribution in northern rural Maine, specifically in July and August, when the children there have the least amount of food to eat. To register, or if you have any questions, please email Barbara Horton bhre77@myfairpoint.net Thanks so much!
