St. Mary’s Nutrition Center | 208 Bates St. | Lewiston, ME 04240
We invite you to join us in celebrating St. Mary's Nutrition Center and our work in creating caring, safe environments that support people in being whole and healthy.
We will begin the evening at 5:30 pm at St. Mary’s Nutrition Center with hors d’oeuvres prepared by our youth and a professional local chef, and with tours of the Center. Guests will be able to enjoy a glass of wine or beer as they tour the Food Pantry – which serves over 1,500 people every week - and the classroom space where more can be learned about other programs we offer, such as Lots to Gardens. During this time, guests are also invited to step outside to view our on-site community garden or onto our Good Food Bus, which makes fresh, high-quality food available to people in downtown Lewiston-Auburn and beyond.
After cocktail hour, guests will move across the street to the magnificent Agora Grand Event Center. Watch local chefs showcase their skills and thoughtfully prepare their specialty foods. The evening program will continue as we enjoy a fully catered sit-down dinner.
We are happy to announce that the following chefs will be joining us at the event:
- Chef Tony from Fishbone’s
- Chef Kevin from Cunningham Catering
- Double Z Land & Livestock
- Chef Erin from Eatswell
- Chef Emily from E. Claire & Pastries
- Tripp's Farmhouse Cafe
Proceeds from the event benefit the St. Mary’s Nutrition Center, which promotes community health through organizing, advocacy, and education. It is home to an emergency food pantry, urban community garden programs, youth leadership programs, the Lewiston Farmers’ Market, the Good Food Bus, and cooking and nutrition programs for adults, teens and kids.
Support of the St. Mary’s Nutrition Center makes good food easily accessible to our community, supporting key programs that help youth learn responsibility and provide job training, and creating a healthier and more vibrant community – for all of us.
