More than 80,000 Maine children receive free or reduced-price meals in school, but when summer vacation comes around, many don’t get the nutrition they need. The Summer Food Service Program operates in schools and community centers across the state to provide nutritious foods for kids facing hunger.
The 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.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the 9th Annual Feed Maine Food Drive sponsored by WCSH 6 / WLBZ 2 and Hannaford Supermarkets! We had a very successful day, and thanks to your donations, we raised enough funds and food to provide 88,300 meals for Mainers facing hunger.
