The statistic is hard to believe, and yet it’s true – one in four Maine children are not receiving the nutritious food they need to grow, learn, and thrive. To combat this serious problem during the summer months, Good Shepherd Food Bank works with partners to operate meal sites for kids in need.
One in seven Mainers depends on their local food assistance charity to feed their family. The Food Bank partners with local farmers across the state to provide families with fresh, nutritious foods.
In 2014, we distributed more than 2 million pounds of local foods to our neighbors in need through the Mainers Feeding Mainers program.
