Bingham – Bingham Area Health Center will offer 5 Food Mobiles in 2017, and the first one takes place Tuesday, March 7 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The event will be held indoors in the lower level of Rangeley Health and Wellness, which is across the street from the Health Center.
This is the 4th year that the Health Center has partnered with Good Shepherd Food Bank to distribute food to those in need living in the greater Bingham area. The distribution will include a variety of perishable and nonperishable foods. Anyone in need of emergency food assistance in 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.
This distribution has been made possible through the generosity of Maine Credit Union League.
For more information about this Food Mobile distribution, please contact Bingham Area Health Center at (207) 672-4187.
