About Us

Begun in 2000, the University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s Maine Harvest for Hunger program is a 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.
