Maine Harvest for Hunger
Address: 75 Clearwater Drive, Suite 104, Falmouth, ME 04105
In 2000, UMaine Cooperative Extension started it’s grassroots effort to encourage gardeners, farmers, businesses, schools, civic groups and others to donate high-quality fruits and vegetables to citizens in need. Through county-based networks, donated produce is delivered to food pantries, soup kitchens, community meals, and individuals across the state. Since 2000, the Maine Harvest for Hunger program has donated just under 3 million pounds of fresh produce. The Maine Harvest for Hunger program is always looking for more individuals to participate in the program and to improve communication between community stakeholders. Project Coordinator: Pamela Hargest.
