Next 2 Rangeley Food Mobiles to Move Indoors

The November 30 and December 28 events will be held at Rangeley Health and Wellness

RANGELEY – The next 2 Rangeley Family Medicine Food Mobile distributions will move across the street and indoors, so that attendees and volunteers will not have to stand out in the cold and wind.  

Rangeley Health and Wellness has generously offered to host the 2 upcoming Good Shepherd Food Bank Food Mobiles this year, taking place on Wednesday, November 30 and Wednesday, December 28 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. 

Food will be distributed to people in need living in the greater Rangeley area, including a variety of perishable and nonperishable foods. Anyone in need of emergency food assistance in Rangeley and the surrounding area is encouraged to attend.

Good Shepherd Food Bank's Food Mobile program expands the hunger relief organization’s outreach to Maine's neediest and most underserved communities. Designed to be a barrier-free distribution, the Food Mobiles visit communities with a demand for emergency and supplemental food that has outgrown the capacity of local food pantries. These distributions have been made possible through the generosity of the Lucia P. Fulton Foundation.

For more information about this Food Mobile distribution, please contact Rangeley Family Medicine at (207) 864-3303.

Rangeley Health and Wellness is located at 25 Dallas Hill Road.
