Did you know that as much as half of the children at Ocean Avenue Elementary School, located less than one mile from Trinity, are receiving subsidized meals? Thankfully, the meal program from the Portland Public Schools takes care of breakfast and lunch for these kids – during the school year. But what about the midmorning snack time, many Trinity parents wondered.
Welcome Trinity’s Ocean Avenue School Snack Program. Each week, members of the Trinity community bring in healthy, individually wrapped snacks – no cookies or other sweets, and nothing containing nuts – in an effort to take some of the load off of the generous teachers, and to help eliminate the times when some kids are enjoying their snacks, while others sit with nothing.
If you’d like to donate snacks to our neighborhood school, contact us at 775-1179.
