In Aroostook County more than 1/3 of the 70,000 residents suffers from chronic, daily hunger. More than 23,000 of those residents depend on Catholic Charities each year for food through the 24 pantries served by our Food Bank. Through Farm for ME we help provide not just food, but nourishment through healthy, fresh vegetables. By increasing
access to healthier food options we can also work toward reducing health issues such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
