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

The Bangor Area Storm Water Group is looking for volunteers from our communities to help protect our local water resources at the 7th Annual Regional Street and Stream Cleanup. This is a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy the fresh spring air with friends and family, while truly making a difference in your community and for our environment. Kid and adults, local organizations, groups and individuals are welcome. Volunteers will meet for a short safety discussion before heading out to the designated cleanup sites. All volunteers will be provided with free T-shirts as well as gloves and safety vests to wear during the event.  After cleanup activities, groups will reassemble for a free BBQ luncheon and celebration of our volunteers’ hard work.
