Food Bank Secures Grant for Cold Storage
A Maine hunger relief organization received a $50,000 grant to build a cold storage unit at its facility in Hampden. The Good Shepherd Food Bank, which distributed nearly 30,000 pounds of food in 2017, will use the funds to serve an additional 10 million meals annually. The cold storage unit will allow the pantry to store produce in three different temperatures and humidity-controlled coolers and freezers.
The food bank hopes to raise $5 million to make the facility a fully functioning distribution center.
