Adopt A Family


Why consider Adopting a Family?

1 in 5 Children go to bed hungry every night.

1 in 7 Adults struggle with hunger.

These are NOT  the statistics of a
third-world country,
these ARE statistics for the
State of Maine
and even more sobering,
these ARE the statistics for
Cumberland County, Maine.


Your South Portland Food Cupboard’s Adopt a Family program is a way for you to become a monthly partner, keeping needy children and families fed with nutritious food.

Each family leaves the SPFC with 14-20 bags full fresh fruit, produce, deli products, other perishable and non-perishable food items … oh … sweets, too.

It costs, on average, $25.00/family to ensure we “Feed Neighbors in Need.”

During our 2017/18 fiscal year an average 279 families/month were fed through the SPFC.

Our initial goal is to have 250 families adopted.
