How to Help

According to Feed America…

1 in 6 people in Maine struggle with hunger.

According to the USDA…

12.7% (15.8 Million) of U.S households were food insecure during 2015.
7.7% (9.5 Million) of U.S households had low food security during 2015.
5.0% (6.3 Million) of U.S households had very low food security during 2015.

At our pantry we feel no one should go hungry. Our organization is 100% volunteer and we love every minute of our service.

There are many families in our community that need help with food donations. Since the Fairfield Interfaith Food Pantry opened in January 1993 we have helped out 30,308 families equaling 84,713 people. Last year in 2016 our pantry gave food to 1,748 families equaling 4,816 people.

You could help by donating in two ways…

You can help by making a money donation. We can purchase food from area business and the Good Shepherd Food Bank of Maine at savings.
