UScellular Surprises Kaydenz Kitchen with Food Donation

LEWISTON, ME (December 2, 2022) – The holidays are about connecting with friends and family, and UScellular is nourishing these connections by enabling communities to share a meal with the ones they love. 

In a surprise visit on December 2nd, UScellular donated food items to Kaydenz Kitchen to aid them in their mission of getting food to those in need. This donation will help stock their shelves at the food pantry. 

“Kaydenz Kitchen does so much for our community, so we wanted to fulfill their wish list and help them deliver the much-needed support they provide throughout the Lewiston area,” said Tabatha McKay, area vice president/general manager at UScellular in New England. “Food has the power to connect people, and we believe every family deserves to come together, strengthen ties, and make memories this time of year.” 

In 2017, Kayden Boilard took notice of a great need in the Lewiston community and asked her parents if they could all find a way to help people get food that they desperately needed. She and her family started a small food pantry and Boilard would shop for food and deliver boxes to those in need. With her parents help, they have expanded and started a 501(c) (3) non-profit, Kaydenz Kitchen Food Pantry and operate out of 550 Lisbon Street in Lewiston.

In 2019, UScellular celebrated Kayden Boilard of Lewiston as one of the company’s The Future of Good recipients. Through The Future of Good program, UScellular donated $10,000 to youth for their inspirational acts of good in their communities. Last year during the holidays, UScellular reached out to Kaydenz Kitchen again, providing the organization with a$500 gift card to support the organization’s operational costs.

“Kayden is near and dear to our heart, she is an incredible young person making an impact on her community,” adds McKay. “We are so happy to continue our support of her mission to bring food to those in need.” 

This holiday season, UScellular is providing food banks, pantries, and shelters with needed supplies and has a goal to support more than 135 organizations across the country. UScellular retail stores are also collecting donations for local food-focused non-profits. For more information, go to

Since 2009, UScellular has donated more than $22.6 million along with countless experiences and technology items to nonprofit organizations across the country. For more information about the company’s community involvement, go to
