Unfortunately, food insecurity is still a major issue in Downeast Maine. There is a major food drive going on throughout the month of March through the auspices of the United Way of Eastern Maine.

If you are able, please donate canned fruits or vegetables, peanut butter, canned tuna, whole wheat pasta or healthy canned soups to the Hancock County Food Drive.

Here are locations where you can drop off items to be donated
