The statewide plan to end hunger and increase access to affordable, nutritious food for all Mainers
Food insecurity affects almost one in five people in Maine—that means they are unable to regularly access enough affordable, nutritious food. And with high costs of gas, energy and food, Maine food pantries are seeing a steep surge in demand. We'll learn about a major initiative underway connecting the state, nonprofits, and the private sector to end hunger in Maine by 2030. As part of it, AmeriCorps VISTA service members are being recruited statewide to deploy in communities throughout the state starting this summer.
