On the southeastern coast of Maine, community, programs, and dignity grows at the Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program (MCHPP). Nestled in the heart of Brunswick is MCHPP, a nonprofit that envisions a community where quality, nutritious food is available for all.
Within their doors in downtown Brunswick, they operate a soup kitchen and food pantry where they meet the needs of the community by offering access to healthy food, serving delicious ready-to-go meals out their door curbside, and offering an online ordering system where neighbors can select the items they want and need, and a box will be ready to pick up on their choice of day and time. MCHPP also offers mobile, school, and satellite pantries across Cumberland, Androscoggin, Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox, and Waldo counties. They are meeting neighbors where they are and breaking transportation barriers. MCHPP is also known for celebrating the differences of their friends and neighbors, they aim to remove barriers to healthful meals for all community members in need regardless of race, color, age, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity. They are committed to creating an environment of inclusion.
