Feed Maine Food Drive - May 5th 2012

Feed Maine Food Drive - May 5th 2012

On May 5th join WCSH6 & WLBZ2 at Hannaford Supermarkets in Sanford on Main Street; Augusta on Cony Street; Auburn on Spring Street; in Scarborough in OakHill Plaza, and in Bangor by the Airport Mall , broadcasting live as we host food drives for Feed ME 2012.  All donations will go to Good Shepherd Food-Bank.

According to the USDA over 15% of Mainers, or in other words 200,000 people, are at risk of hunger.  Nearly 25% of the children here in Maine are food insecure – meaning they do not have access to nutritious food, thus preventing the opportunity to lead a healthier life.  Nearly 40% of the people served by Good Shepherd are children; and sadly the number of food insecure in Maine alone has increased by nearly 25% since 2005. 

Some of the most needed foods are:

  • Canned Items: meats, vegetables & beans, and fruit
  • Instant Potatoes & Rice
