Good Shepherd Food Bank was selected as the charitable beneficiary of the 2015 TD Beach to Beacon.
One in four Maine children do not have access to the healthy food they need to grow and achieve their full potential. Funds raised through Beach to Beacon will support Good Shepherd Food Bank’s child hunger programs across the state. By joining the GSFB team you are helping more than 60,000 Maine children who face hunger every day by encouraging your family and friends to support you in this effort.
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.
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, Good Shepherd Food Bank and our partners have developed several programs to provide food to Maine kids when they need it most.
