Good Shepherd Food Bank Partnership
MASN partnering with Good Shephard Food Bank to Expand Afterschool Snack/Dinner Program in Maine.
Madelyn Holm, one of the newest members of Feeding America’s Child Hunger Corps has just begun her two year placement at Good Shepherd Food Bank here in Maine. Madelyn’s focus area during this time is going to be expanding our state’s utilization of the CACFP At-Risk program – a federal funding source available to reimburse dinners and snacks through after school programs. As a newer reimbursement program, there are only few sites across the state currently enrolled and receiving funds, but there is tremendous room for expansion. Madelyn is looking to speak with organizations already accessing these funds to learn more about your experiences, as well as with providers not yet participating but interested in signing up to receive CACFP At Risk reimbursements for their programs.
Please feel free to reach out to Madelyn with questions or feedback about her project at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207.520.9711.
