A series of events hosted by local organizations plus ‘Green Plate Specials’ at local restaurants will shine on spotlight on hunger-fighting programs to raise public awareness and participation.

The Merrymeeting Gleaners invite you to 'Glean with a Friend'

Thanks to the generosity of Six River Farm in Bowdoinham, current gleaners and their friends – and anyone who would like to meet new friends and do some gleaning! – will harvest as many vegetables as possible. 

Gleaners harvest and collect surplus produce from farms and farmers’ markets for re-distribution. The Merrymeeting Gleaners distribute donated produce to soup kitchens, food pantries, Head Start and WIC programs, and low-income housing communities in nine communities from Richmond to Bath. This produce will provide meals for midcoast Maine’s hungry children, elders, and all in need.
