Read to feed your neighbors!
Throughout the month of April, K-8 students have the opportunity to participate in the Hancock County Food Drive by fundraising for every minute they spend reading! Students have the opportunity to practice their reading skills, support their neighbors through fundraising, and even win prizes!

More than 1 in 10 Maine households goes without nutritious food, making Maine the most food insecure state in New England. Childhood food insecurity rates in our region are even higher: according to Kids Count Data Center, 1 in 5 children in Hancock County live in food insecure households, which can have lifelong impacts on children’s physical health, mental health, and education outcomes. By building resources for local food programs, the Hancock County Food Drive works to ensure that all people in our community have access to nutritious, affordable food!

Students who read for the most minutes during the month of April will win a gift card from our amazing local bookstore sponsors: Sherman's in Bar Harbor, Compass Rose Books in Castine, BookStacks in Bucksport, and Blue Hill Books in Blue Hill, Maine.
