There is a solution to the problem of hunger in Maine

For every person who is currently in need, there are even more Maine citizens and businesses who are able and willing to reach out and give them a helping hand.

Reaching out

Since 1981, Good Shepherd Food Bank has worked diligently to establish partnerships with many others concerned about ending hunger here in Maine.

Be it an individual, church or civic group, small business or large corporation, by partnering together we have made huge strides towards our goal. We must not stop pressing ahead however in our efforts to conquer a problem of this importance and magnitude.

Gathering millions of pounds of food each year!

Good Shepherd Food Bank relies on its solid relationships with Maine’s food industry in order to obtain millions of pounds of food each year. Additionally, we secure yet more truckloads for the state of Maine from national food donors through our affiliation with Feeding America.

Whether it’s from a large food manufacturer or a local farmer donating excess produce, there are large quantities of food available, much of which would go to waste if it weren’t for the Good Shepherd Food Bank.

Finding long-term solutions

In addition to distributing food to Mainers in need, the Food Bank is leading a statewide effort to combat the root causes of hunger by engaging in advocacy, nutrition education, and strategic partnerships. We welcome you to join us in this effort!
