Mainers Feeding Mainers

We welcome local food producers throughout Maine to join our work to eliminate hunger in the state.

Good Shepherd Food Bank launched Mainers Feeding Mainers by forming partnerships with the people who work the land and the sea, to provide food for Mainers facing hunger. Our goal: to get fresh and nutritionally balanced Maine-harvested food to Maine families in need.

Since launching the program,

We have worked with more than 80 farm partners to acquire and distribute over 2 million pounds of fresh, Maine-grown food per year to families in need.
