Summer Food Service Program to offer suppers during 2018 blueberry season

Harrington, Maine — With the Wild Blueberry Harvest right around the corner, it’s time to think about how children who receive free or reduced-priced lunch in school will eat healthy while school is out. Mano en Mano provides free meals to children during the harvest. Raker families can come for a grand opening of the Raker Center with your family to the kickoff event and learn more about Harvest Meals. Raker Supper will be at Narragaugus High School on Sunday, July 29th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. There is no cost to attend.

More information is available at 207-598-8925.

Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Mano en Mano, to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. Anyone age 18 or younger may come and eat and adults accompanying their children can join as well. Through a grant from Good Shepherd Food Bank and Full Plates, Full Potential - parents with children will also receive a free supper!

Additionally, a late lunch will be served on a rotating basis at the Harvest Camps, Monday through Thursday 4 - 6 pm from July 30-August 17th. There are no income requirements or registration.
