Reduce food insecurity in Maine through food distribution and community partnerships.
Food Distribution: Good Shepherd Food Bank (GSFB) provides for those at risk of hunger by soliciting food donations and purchasing food at wholesale prices, then distributing this food to more than 500 partner agencies across Maine, including food pantries, meal sites, shelters, schools, afterschool programs, child care centers, senior centers, and other community organizations. In its 2020 fiscal year, GSFB distributed more than 35 million pounds of food to partner agencies and the families and individuals they serve, providing over 29 million meals for Mainers in need.
Mainers Feeding Mainers: this program is the Food Bank's collaboration with local farms to purchase and distribute nutritious, Maine-grown food. Each year, the Food Bank makes purchases of fresh Maine vegetables, fruits, grains, and dairy products on behalf of partner agencies. The Food Bank also receives donations from many local farmers. In calendar year 2019, the Food Bank distributed 2 million pounds of local foods and invested over $750,000 into Maine's agricultural sector.
Youth & Families Initiatives: Good Shepherd Food Bank operates the School Pantry Program to provide easy, consistent access to nutritious food for students and their families. Our school partners not only serve as food distribution sites in vulnerable areas, but also function as vital community resource hubs where families feel welcomed, supported, and safe. In addition, the Food Bank operates an afterschool meal & snack program called Kids Cafe and the Summer Food Service and Child & Adult Care Food Programs in Bangor and Brewer. In collaboration with 228 program partners, GSFB distributed over 2.3 million meals to more than 21,000 families statewide through Youth & Family Initiatives in FY2020.
