Hunger in Maine can be solved
Our state has plenty of food. The problem comes down to getting the food to the people in need, but it takes public and private sector partnerships to pull it off. Plus, it takes individuals donating food, contributing money and volunteering their time.
- $16 = meals for a family of 3 for a week ($64 = month)
- $24 = meals for a senior on a fixed income for an entire month
- $50 = 100 lbs. of fresh produce from a Maine farm
- $200 = nutritious food for a child to take home from school for evenings and weekends, for an entire school year
If you would prefer to send a check rather than contributing online, please send yours to:
