Given the hunger crisis in our state, Joe is always appreciative of local organizations that step up to feed fellow Mainers. Few have done more to help this cause than Wayside Food Programs, a nonprofit that has been serving hungry Mainers since 1986. The Mission of Wayside is to increase access to food for those in need in Southern Maine by providing a system for community-based volunteers who serve prepared meals where such meals are needed, and by collaborating with other hunger agencies and community stakeholders in developing an efficient network for the collection and equitable distribution of food. Wayside’s hunger relief efforts include: A Food Rescue Program, 14 free weekly Community Meals, 5 monthly Mobile Food Pantries, and more.
Wayside hopes that you will join old friends and new friends at their annual Thanksgiving Day Meal. All are welcome! The event will be held next Thursday, November 22nd, from 11am-1pm at the Portland Club. 156 State Street, Portland. This event is free and open to the public. Joe offers his thanks to Wayside for the important services they offer to the Portland community, and hopes the Thanksgiving Day Meal is a great success!
