To all our friends and supporters,
Thank you for your many offers to help. Once again, this wonderful, caring community leads the way.
The Locker Project remains focused on our mission to connect food-insecure children and families with the nourishing food they will need in the days and weeks ahead. With schools in Portland, South Portland and Westbrook closed for at least the next two weeks, we’ll be working with our partners to distribute the healthy food available as safely and effectively as possible.
