2nd Annual Beacon of Hope Award: Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program

This is our second annual Beacon of Hope Award and I think it’s safe to say that selecting one agency among hundreds that represents courage, hard work and effectiveness is going to always be challenging as all of you do so much wonderful work.

However, we’re really excited to present this award to a much deserving partner of ours.

This year’s recipient truly is a Beacon of Hope for the hundreds they serve in their community. They offer a full spectrum of services to meet the diverse needs of their clients, including a food pantry, soup kitchen, offering direct delivery to home bound seniors and taking a wholistic approach providing sustainable living education and referral services.

Most especially, this agency is a leader among peers, hosting a valuable program organizing a coalition of food pantries to network, share resources, and serve as a forum to address the challenges of hunger as a team.

So we are pleased to announce that this year’s recipient of the Beacon of Hope Award is the Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program!
GSFB Network is a blog for partner agencies of Good Shepherd Food Bank focused on feeding Maine's hungry.
