Reaching out to feed the hungry in Mid-coast Maine
Welcome to the Ecumenical Food Pantry
located in Newcastle, Maine
We have been serving the Midcoast area
Our food pantry is open on Tuesdays (every week) form 9 AM to 11 AM
IMPORTANT NOTICE - HOURS WILL BE CHANGING DECEMBER 3RD - NEW HOURS WILL BE 9:30 TO 11:00
We are situated on the ground/parking lot level of Second Congregational Church in Newcastle (the address is 51 Main Street - but there are no numbers on the church). This is the large brick church on the corner across from the Newcastle Publick House - at the intersection of Business Route 1 and Academy Hill Road.
We were established to serve the towns of Damariscotta, Newcastle and Nobleboro,
but do not turn anyone away.
For the second year, the Montessori School in Nobleboro has tied a food drive for the Ecumenical Food Pantry to their annual Harvest Fest celebration.
Emma Tolley, Lyla Corbett, Jake Bickmore and Christopher Decker delivered the food to the food pantry.

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?
On October 29th, Pauline Hanson, a Tedford Case Manager, joined us. She will be available every Tuesday to help with non-food-related emergency situations such as a need for housing, utility or heat assistance.
Distribution of Thanksgiving baskets will be coordinated by the food pantry this year. Sign-up is at local town offices. Distribution will be on Tuesday, November 26th.
The Midcoast Hunger Coalition recently had some grant money available for a new computer for the food pantry. Software has been loaded onto the computer and the initial data has been loaded. We plan to switch over to the new system on January 1st.
