2015 Committee Members
As we’re sure you’ve noticed, the weather in South Portland isn’t cooperating today. While we know the people of Maine can handle rain, the wind gusts have created unsafe conditions in our tent. We have been advised that it is not safe to go forward with this afternoon’s Taste of the Nation.
We are incredibly disappointed to cancel given the months of hard work and planning by our volunteers, chefs, sponsors and supporters. This dedicated group has worked tirelessly and given generously to build a great event and to raise critical funds to help kids facing hunger. At this time, we do not have plans to reschedule and we will begin work immediately to bring back a fantastic event next year.
We will also be hosting an online auction with all of the incredible silent and live auction items that were generously donated for this event. We plan to have the auction live as soon as possible and will keep it open for a week to ensure that we can provide as much support as possible to our local grantees, Good Shepard Food Bank, Preble Street, Cultivating Community and Opportunity Alliance in addition to our National No Kid Hungry Campaign. The auction will be open to the public.
Thank you again for your generous support.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Proceeds from our events will support these organizations which are dedicated to fighting hunger in Maine and the No Kid Hungry campaign:
Cultivating Community teaches organic and sustainable farming practices to grow food in school gardens, community spaces, and partnering farms to feed the most vulnerable in Maine.
Good Shepherd Food Bank's mission is to provide food for those experiencing food insecurity by soliciting surplus food and serving as an umbrella organization for food distribution to non-profit programs and food pantries throughout Maine.
Preble Street Teen Center is the hub of services for homeless and runaway youth, providing immediate access and an acclaimed service coordination model. The Center helps to meet immediate needs by providing warmth and safety, nutritious meals, clothing, and crisis intervention.
No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength's No Kid Hngry Campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.
