The Locker Project mission is to connect food-insecure children in Maine with nourishing food to improve their learning capacity, health and future. We take a whole-family approach to child hunger with programs that strive to be low-barrier, stigma-free, and environmentally responsible.

With the help of our community partners, donors and volunteers, the Locker Project distributes healthy take-home food to children at public schools, preschools and youth programs across Greater Portland. 

  • We rescue more than 13,000 pounds of fresh, healthy food from local markets every month to distribute to children and families at risk of hunger.
  • We stock 20+ school pantries with purchased and donated dry goods.
  • We provide schools with funding to access nutritious food from Good Shepherd Food Bank.

In 2018, we distributed more than 185,000 pounds of healthy snacks, meal items, and fresh food to students to take home to share with their families.
