4-H Piscataquis Passport Project
Youth ages 5-18 are invited to enroll in the 4-H Piscataquis Passport Project. This program is intended to encourage youth and their families to access healthy food and fun activities this summer in the Dover-Foxcroft area.
Youth who sign up by June 3, 2019, will receive a passport that they can have stamped at
- SeDoMoCha school garden
- Thompson Free Library
- Dover Cove Farmers Market
- SeDoMoCha Middle School free summer meal
- Mayo Regional Hospital free summer meal
This year we also plan in collaboration with the Piscataquis Soil and Water Conservation District an Adventures in Nature Series. There will be more events posted as we get closer to summer vacation.
One of the most popular features of the Passport Project is the Veggie Vouchers. Each time the participants have their passports stamped at DCFM, they’ll receive $5 in Veggie Vouchers, up to $30 to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at DCFM. Veggie Vouchers are supported by the Piscataquis Regional Food Center and the Piscataquis Extension Association Executive Committee.
The project is a collaboration between the University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H and community partners in Piscataquis County. Enrollment forms are available Monday, Thursday, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the University of Maine Extension office 165 East Main St. Dover-Foxcroft or you can download them HERE, to print off, fill out, and bring into the office.
