Hancock county food drive

13th Annual

The Hancock County Food Drive is an annual month-long food collection and fundraising project that supports food pantries, free meal programs, and school backpack programs across Hancock County. 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.

We estimate that food security organizations in Downeast, Maine collectively serve 10,000 individuals per month. By building resources for these programs, the Hancock County Food Drive works to ensure that all people in our community have access to nutritious, affordable food.

At the end of April, all of the donations will be evenly distributed among the 17 participating food assistance programs. 100% of your donation goes toward feeding people in our community!

$1 donation

= 2 meals
Monetary donations go a long way. Food pantries often buy their food at wholesale cost from food banks, so they can purchase almost twice as much food with $1.
