To see a list of all organizations indexed under a particular category, type the name of the category into the search bar. Please note that some organizations have multiple sub-category affiliations, but searching by category using the arrows to create an alphabetical list by category or by using the drop down menu exclusively will only produce the names of organizations under their primary category designations. Use the drop down to search primary category listings and for reference in typing categories into the search bar.

Description

Through the Downeast Gleaning Initiative, Healthy Acadia, in partnership with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, works to address food insecurity in the region. They coordinate gleaning opportunities throughout Hancock and Washington Counties, connecting volunteers with farms, orchards, farmers’ markets, and other food producers and vendors to collect food that would otherwise go to waste. They then manage distribution of the collected food to community meal sites and FSO’s.
