What an amazing event! This community continues to rise to the challenge and exceed our goals!
In 2016, Deering High School students teamed up with Westbrook High School and other local schools to fill 2 morning shifts on March 18. With their involvement, and the continued support of the southern Maine community members in a huge evening packing shift, this was the largest Million Meals Maine packing event yet!
With approximately 1,500 volunteers in attendance throughout the day, and a goal of packing 250,000 meals, everyone worked fast to pack as many meals as possible. By the end of the 3rd shift at 8:00 pm, the final tally was announced. A total of 264, 384 meals were packed on March 18! This means that 724 children will be able to eat for an entire year as a result of local volunteers and donors. THANK YOU!
