The Rotary Club of Damariscotta-Newcastle is launching a new summer effort to help feed hungry children in Lincoln County, the Rotary Summer Food for Kids shed. A shed opposite Supplies Unlimited on Business Route 1 in Damariscotta will be used by volunteers from the Rotary Club to distribute free food to children up to age 18 on a walk-in basis. Both food for immediate snacking and food to prepare at home will be supplied.
The hours for summer 2017 are 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. The shed started off with initial food supplied by donations from a Y-sponsored Fill the Bus event which took place with the cooperation of the Damariscotta Hannaford Supermarket on Saturday, July 22.
The Rotary Club will happily accept donations of food or cash in support of this project. Contact the club at the Rotary Club of Damariscotta-Newcastle Facebook page.
