Thank you for donating to NCM's 2023 Feed Maine Telethon

All donations go to the Good Shepherd Food Bank to help feed Mainers in need.



NEWS CENTER Maine's 2023 Feed Maine Telethon raised $184,525 for Mainers in need of food and included $25,000 from Hannaford and $10,000 from Reny’s Charitable Foundation. 

This means 369,050 meals will be provided by Good Shepherd Food Bank to Mainers.

Thank you to all who donated. Your generosity is what made this possible, and your donations will go to Good Shepherd Food Bank to feed Mainers who are experiencing food insecurity.

There's still time to donate to NEWS CENTER Maine's Feed Maine Telethon here.

Original story

Food insecurity is a crisis in Maine, impacting an estimated 11.4 percent of households in the state. That's roughly equivalent to the combined populations of Maine's four largest cities.

Today, over 180,000 Mainers rely on Good Shepherd Food Bank and its network of partners with nearly 30 percent, or 54,000, being children.  

Doing Good Together, we can help Feed Maine.

NEWS CENTER Maine launched Feed Maine in September 2017 with the goal to raise enough money to supply one million meals to the people of Maine when and where they need it. We are happy to report that we reached that goal, but Mainers are still dealing with food insecurity, and we need your help.

All donations will go to Good Shepherd Food Bank to feed Mainers.
