The Food Bank will use the funding, which comes the Fund for a Healthy Maine, to purchase vegetables, fruits, and seafood from Maine producers and will distribute it to hunger relief programs across the state.

In 2015, the Food Bank distributed 1.5 million pounds of local foods to our neighbors in need through the Mainers Feeding Mainers program.
