The Portland Public Schools announces its continued participation in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program for its federally assisted after-school snack program. The program offers students, as part of an after-school program in qualifying schools, an after-school snack that we call SuperSnack.

The district’s Food Service Department is ready to work with the city of Portland’s Recreation Division’s after-school program and the LearningWorks programs upon students’ return to school this fall. The 2021-2022 school year marks the fourth year that the district has participated in the program.

SuperSnacks consist of all five components of the meal program. The healthy snacks are packaged at Central Kitchen for easy distribution to our partner organizations.

SuperSnacks are available at no separate charge to students who participate in the after-school programs listed above without regard to race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, gender identity, religion, reprisal, and where applicable, political beliefs, marital status, familial or parental status, sexual orientation, or all or part of an individual’s income is derived from any public assistance program, or protected genetic information in employment or in any program or activity conducted or funded by the Department.

For further information, please contact Jane McLucas, Food Service Director, 207-874-8231 or email at mclucj@portlandschools.org
