Dear SAD 17 Families,


As the end of this school year has arrived, we are pleased to have been able to continue providing meals to students throughout the pandemic that closed our schools in mid-March.  Today is the final meal delivery for this school year.  In a continued effort to be supportive of families, we have put together information that will connect people with other resources for food needs over the summer as follows:


*Summer feeding sites - http://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks or call 211


*Pandemic EBT card - https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/ofi/


*All benefits - https://www1.maine.gov/benefits/account/login.html


*MSAD 17 - http://www.msad17.org/content/food-service-department (list of area food pantries and other resources)


*Progress Center - https://progresscentermaine.org/summerlunch/ (updated information will be added to the first option above, but this program begins June 15th as follows: Norway Family Apts, 63 Cottage St., Norway @ 10:00 am; Alpine Apts, Alpine Park Rd, Norway @ 10:20; Windward Apts, 223 Paris Hill Rd, S. Paris @ 10:50; Strawberry Bluff, 20 Deering St., S. Paris @ 11:10; Oxford Regency, 100 Carol Rd, Oxford @ 11:35; Raspberry Knoll Apts, 59 Bartlett St., Norway @ 12:10.


*Oxford Food Pantry - Drive-through food distribution at Oxford Town Office, Thursdays, 11:30-1, FMI call 539-4431 


*Norway Food Pantry - Episcopal Church on Mondays and Fridays, FMI call 743-6430


During this time of uncertainty and unease our staff has enjoyed the notes and pictures from  some of the students to whom we have delivered meals.  Our hope is that students found a measure of comfort in the continuity of not only receiving meals, but also in seeing busses and staff delivering meals, as much as staff did in providing that service.


We wish for you a healthy and renewing summer!




Jodi Truman, MSAD 17 Food Service Director and Staff









Our guidance counselor, Ms. Lundberg, works all year investigating ways to get as many students as we can to summer camp.

We know that families rely on summer camps as a way to fill their students’ days with engaging and educational activities.

Since it is still unclear if or when summer camps will be able to open in person, Ms. Lundberg found this option that she wanted me to share with families.


Varsity Tutors is here to help with Virtual Summer Camps—free online summer camps for students ages 5-18.

Check out the link below to see what is currently being offered. New camps are added almost daily.
