National Health Center Week is August 4-10. Hometown Health Center is kicking off the celebration early by hosting the Good Shepherd Food Bank’s Mobile Food Truck in Hometown Health Center’s parking lot, 118 Moosehead Trail, Newport, Thursday, August 1, 10:30 a.m. to noon.
The Mobile Food Truck will be distributing food, including fresh produce, perishable and non-perishable items to people in need of food assistance in Newport and the surrounding area towns. Anyone needing a little help is welcome to attend. No questions asked other than family size and town. We only ask that people bring their own grocery bags if possible.
Good Shepherd Food Bank’s Food Mobile program allows Good Shepherd to expand its outreach to Maine’s most underserved communities. As the largest hunger relief organization in Maine, Good Shepherd Food Bank provides for Mainers facing hunger by distributing nutritious food to more than 400 partner agencies across the state, including food pantries, meal sites, schools, and senior programs.
