Great Job Feeding Eastport Kids This Summer! Jana Sutherland put together a great program for feeding lunches to Eastport kids at several locations for eight weeks this summer. With the City of Eastport acting as fiscal sponsor Jana found volunteers to pack lunches at the Cobscook Kitchen & Marketplace at the head of the breakwater. Many thanks to Jana for persisting through the heat of summer to help feed Eastport kids. Special thanks to the staff at the First National Bank who regularly volunteered and helped make the program such a success.
