Horticulture - Maine Harvest for Hunger

The Maine Harvest for Hunger project is an outreach program of the  University of Maine Cooperative Extension to provide  fresh fruits and vegetables to food insecure individuals and families in  Maine.

How you can help: Enroll in the Maine Harvest for Hunger program and grow an extra row of vegetables or fruits and donate the surplus to a local food pantry or soup kitchen. If every gardener contributes, a significant impact can be made on reducing hunger. Master Gardeners and all types of growers all over Maine are invited to  participate.
