NC-photos-to-add-to-network-fall-2009-160As one of the largest emergency food pantries in Maine, the St. Mary's Food Pantry has been providing emergency food assistance to residents of the greater Androscoggin County for over 20 years. Now at a new location on the corner of Bates and Walnut Streets, the Food Pantry remains conveniently located in the heart of downtown Lewiston.

In addition to obtaining and distributing food to the thousands of individuals seeking assistance from the Food Pantry, our director, Joyce Gagnon, serves as a catalyst to direct clients to alternative sources of assistance, both financial and supportive. Joyce elaborates, "Into each box of food we distribute, we always add our prayers, our support, and our hope for a better tomorrow."Ltg-photos-for-network-005

The St. Mary's Food Pantry relies solely on charitable donations to feed the hungry of Lewiston/Auburn. The dedication of our Food Pantry volunteers and the generous support of our donors are absolutely essential to performing the vital task of feeding the hungry among us. 

For more information on the St. Mary's Food Pantry, please contact Joyce Gagnon, Monday through Friday, between 8 and 11 am.
