Featuring St.Marys Food Panty
Sometimes we need a little help, sometimes we need a lot of help!! Sometimes that help involves obtaining groceries!! With the prices of food continually increasing, it can be hard for even a person or couple working full time to make ends meet!! Or sometimes we may Be unemployed or on a fixed and limited income and need a helping hand. Whatever the case may be for us, how grateful we can be for organizations that provide the help we need!!
I also believe for some it takes strength to ask for help, I really admire those that take the step forward to help themselves!!
Yesterday I spent some time at the St. Mary’s Food Pantry!! What a wonderful group of people helping the community!! Both hired and volunteer workers were very pleasant, helpful and efficient!! The large group of people looking for assistance entered and exited with boxes of food, or bags in hand And smiles on their faces. These employees and volunteers made it an easy and smooth process.
St. Marys Food Pantry is one of the Largest emergency Food Pantries in Maine!! Wow!! It serves over 1000 people per week.. Located in the heart of downtown Lewiston across the street from Kennedy park. 208 Bates Street Lewiston, ME 04240
