Food for All: A Campaign to Nourish Maine

The Bold Goal

Good Shepherd Food Bank has set a bold goal: By 2025, all food insecure Mainers will have access to the nutritious food they need to thrive, when and where they need it. This means an additional 10 million meals are needed—beyond the 24 million annually provided by the Food Bank and its partners.

Renovating the Hampden Distribution Center

The single greatest obstacle to meeting the Food Bank’s long-term goals of distributing enough meals to feed all food-insecure Mainers is the limited capacity and location of our existing Auburn-based distribution center and cold storage. The Food for All Campaign will help address this challenge. The capital campaign will fund the renovation of the former Bangor Daily News printing plant in Hampden into a 40,000 sq. ft. distribution center. Once complete, the facility will have the capacity to distribute an additional 10 million more meals annually.

An investment in the Food for All campaign is an investment in Maine’s future. Join us.
