Food Pantries and Meal Sites

Hancock County Food Pantries and Free Community Meal Sites
February 28, 2015

The first 10 food pantries listed below will receive an equal share of the food collected in the 2015 Hancock County Food Drive. The eleventh pantry (West Side Pantry) distributes vouchers only and is not set up to store or distribute food. All money raised will be divided evenly between the eleven food pantries and six free community meal sites in Hancock County.

*Bucksport Food Pantry has kindly elected NOT to receive food or matching funds from this year’s drive because the local community has been so generous to them since the Mill closure. They are doing well financially, and want the food and money that is collected in this year’s drive to go to pantries that have a greater need.
