Maine food for Maine families

Spiller_Sign_smThe state of Maine is rich with natural resources, including the fertile land and sea that together form the foundation of our growing agricultural industry. Given the bounty that surrounds us each harvest season, Good Shepherd Food Bank decided to take advantage of our local resources and form partnerships with Maine farmers.

Together, we’re putting nutritious, local foods on more Maine tables.
