One of the things I love about Maine is that Mainers help Mainers. There's another opportunity to help this Saturday, March 19th from 10 AM to 3 PM at Shaw's in Ellsworth.

Representatives from Dead River's Ellsworth office will be collecting food in support of Healthy Acadia's 2016 Food Drive. All food collected will go to local food pantries that serve our friends and neighbors in need.

Suggested donations include whole grain pasta, whole grain rice, healthy soups, canned vegetables, canned tuna, canned meats, peanut butter, low-sugar whole grain cereal and low-sugar canned fruit.
