Hunger Initiative Food Distribution in Portland
Thursday, August 06, 2020, 02:00pm - 06:00pm
The Diocesan Hunger Initiative's next opportunity to distribute FREE FOOD will be for Cumberland County residents on Thursday, August 6 from 2:00 to 6:00pm (or while supplies last) at the Fitzpatrick Stadium Deering Avenue entrance.
The City of Portland is working with the USDA and the Episcopal Diocese of Maine in partnership with Pineland Farms to distribute these boxes. Each box will include the following Maine products: 5 lbs. potatoes, 6 lbs. microwavable mashed potatoes, 2 1/2 lbs. cheddar cheese, and 1/2 gallon of fresh 2% milk.
You have probably seen operations like this on television where the cars are lined up and volunteers (wearing gloves and masks) drop the food and milk into the open trunks. There are no eligibility barriers. Food boxes will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you live in Cumberland County and are in need of food, please come!
