“We are grateful to the Live and Work in Maine Open for shining a spotlight on the ongoing issue of food insecurity, which is at an all-time high,” said Justin Strasburger of Full Plates Full Potential.  “In fact, estimates show that child food insecurity has increased by as much as 40% in Maine over the last year of the pandemic. Now, more than ever, we need folks to step up and help ensure that all kids have consistent access to nutritious food.”

The Live + Work in Maine Open, part of the Korn Ferry Tour, is scheduled to take place June 21-27, 2021 at the Falmouth Country Club.
