RANGELEY — Good Shepherd Food Bank will distribute food to Rangeley-area families with six Food Mobiles in 2017. The first one will take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Feb. 22, in the lower level of Rangeley Health and Wellness at 25 Dallas Hill Road.

Members from the local police department will volunteer to bring boxes of food to people who are housebound.

Food will be distributed to people in need living in the greater Rangeley area, including a variety of perishable and nonperishable foods. Anyone in need of emergency food assistance in the surrounding area is encouraged to attend.

Good Shepherd Food Bank’s Food Mobile program expands the hunger relief organization’s outreach to Maine’s neediest and most underserved communities. Designed to be a barrier-free distribution, the Food Mobiles visit communities with a demand for emergency and supplemental food that has outgrown the capacity of local food pantries.
