Food Insecurity is a major issue in rural New England Communities. With schools closed for the remainder of the school year, many students are in danger of losing breakfast and lunches provided to them.
From now until 12am, Wednesday May 13th for every $150 donated I will walk 1 mile in Full Medieval Armor though communities in my local school district. 50% of the proceeds will go to Full Plates- Full Potential, an organization dedicated to ending child hunger in Maine. The other 50% will go directly to the local MSAD 40 school district lunch program. SAD 40 was one of the first local school districts to promise to continue delivering lunches their students.
Donations can be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org via PayPal or Venmo, please make sure to note “Make Hunger History.”
I am calling on friends and colleagues in the reenactment community to join me in this endeavour, together we can #makehungerhistory.

We are entering the time of year where a lot of schools have/would just be starting their “Medieval History” units. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, All schools in Maine, and the majority of schools in New England have been closed for at least 3 weeks, if not longer.
We are working with a network of reenactors and historians offering distance learning videos and live stream Q&A Presentations through Facebook and Zoom in order to assist with the heavy load on teachers at this time.
As always, this service will be free to both Schools and Libraries.
If you would like to volunteer please email email@example.com
Please share this to any education professionals that you think may like to take advantage of this.
