Online event to meet and learn about Food Bank Farms and Gleaning in Lincoln County
Lincoln County, Maine - On Wednesday, June 23, at 6:00 PM, the Lincoln County Food Council will host an online event ‘Food Bank Farms and Gleaning in Lincoln County,’ an education session about food-bank farms and gleaning programs that provide local produce and increase food security in Lincoln County. This event open to anyone who is curious about these farms or looking for a new volunteer opportunity.
The event will feature presentations by Megan Taft of Twin Villages Foodbank Farm, Erica Berman of Veggies to Table foodbank farm, and Mary Kate Reny of the Lincoln County Gleaners. Each presentation will describe their unique approach, how they interact with our community, and how the public might participate as volunteers. After panel presentations, there will be a question and answer portion open to all participants.
"There is so much good work going on in Lincoln County bringing local products to more people, and I hope this event will highlight that work and connect more volunteers,” says event organizer Merry Fossel, local food security advocate and participant in the Lincoln County Food Council. Volunteer opportunities include fieldwork, harvesting, sorting, transporting, storing, and processing food to increase access to nutritious locally grown produce for members of our community. This online event is a great opportunity to learn more about how these food security programs work, to get involved, or simply see beautiful photos of the farms!
