Harvesting Good

With empty calories so abundant and cheap to purchase, families struggle to get healthy meals on the table, and local farmers fight to earn a living.

In our efforts, we have discovered that above all, we need a food system that provides healthy food for all and a working business model for small and mid-size farmers to make a difference.

Harvesting Good is a for-profit public benefit corporation and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Good Shepherd Food Bank of Maine. Its mission is to improve access to nutritious food for all consumers and strengthen regional food systems by creating a mid-scale food processing venture.

Helping fight hunger all year long

Currently, local food is largely only available during the region’s short growing season, limiting farmers’ opportunities and consumer availability.

Harvesting Good is launching a revolutionary business model in the form of a completely transparent frozen food processing system that produces affordable, healthy food, supports local farms, and strengthens rural communities.
