Winter in Maine can be challenging. Especially for those who have to make a choice between buying food, heat or medication.

Get involved in the 7th annual Hancock County Food Drive! In 2017, 10,500 food items were collected and $15,000 was raised from sponsors, school collections, and private donors. The drive benefited 14 food security organizations that serve our neighbors in need across Hancock County. This year’s goal is to raise $20,000!
Food insecurity affects more than 15% of Hancock County residents!
1 in 4 children in Maine are at risk of food insecurity
