AUBURN – In an effort to overcome being regarded as one of “Maine’s Best Kept Secrets,” Good Shepherd Food-Bank has formed a Development Committee made up of community members who are interested in helping in the areas of friend-raising, fund-raising, media relations, public awareness and education.

Good Shepherd Food-Bank is Maine’s largest social service network, serving all 16 counties. Last year, more than 7.9 million pounds of food was distributed to various nonprofit agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters, recovery and foster homes and kid’s camps.

It is estimated that more than 70,000 people each month are fed through the various agencies of the food bank.

The Development Committee is made up of people who, by networking together, will bring greater awareness of the service and benefit of the food bank and have significant impact in the immediate community. Anyone who would like to join should contact JoAn Chartier or Michelle Gosselin at 782-3554.
