211 Maine

Food

If you are struggling to feed your family, you are not alone. Food insecurity is a significant challenge facing people in Maine today. 211 can connect you with programs that can help.

Trained, local specialists can provide information about school lunch programs and summer food service programs for your children. You can get information on government-sponsored programs such as  Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which helps thousands of people in Maine purchase food through grocery stores, and farmers markets. See if you qualify for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), which provides food as well as  nutrition education to new mothers, infants and children up to age five.

211 is your resource for food assistance and nutrition education for  infants, families, individuals, and older adults in your community. We can also  put you in touch with in-home meal delivery services, seasonal meals and soup kitchens, and community gardening opportunities. No matter your age, health or income level, we’re here to connect you to healthy food options for you and your family.
