About the Food Drive

The Hancock County Food Drive is an annual month-long food collection and fundraising project that directly supports food pantries, free meal programs, and school nutrition programs across Hancock County. With the help of volunteers, these organizations work together every spring to raise funds and collect food, providing critical assistance to Mainers during a time when food insecurity rates are at their highest.

The Food Drive is organized by members of the Hancock County Food Security Network, Healthy Acadia, United Way of Eastern Maine, UMaine Cooperative Extension, and Star 97.7, and is generously supported by Maine Community Foundation. Thank you to Maine Coast Mall in Ellsworth for providing an annual storage space for thousands of food donations.
