Unity Barn Raisers and Veggies For All present Empty Bowls 2017, a benefit for the Volunteer Regional Food Pantry and the Western Waldo County Gleaning Initiative. Due to inclement weather the date has been changed from Tuesday, March 14, to Wednesday March 15, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Maine Farmland Trust’s Unity Food Hub, 69 School St.
The public is invited to enjoy a simple soup dinner, take home a beautiful bowl and support hunger relief in the Unity area. Soups feature local ingredients sourced through the Unity Food Hub and are appropriate for a variety of dietary needs. Suggested donation of $10.00.
For more information or to make a donation, contact Mary Leaming of Unity Barn Raisers, at 948-9005 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Volunteer Regional Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) community-operated food pantry providing emergency and supplementary food and services to those at risk of hunger in the Unity, Maine area. The goal of the VRFP is to increase quality of life through a focus on food security.
Unity Barn Raisers works pro-actively to enhance small-town character and rural environment, while nurturing a thriving community-based economy. UBR believes that a community working together can shape its own future and, in so doing, significantly advance the quality of life of its people, both now and for generations to come.
Veggies For All, a project of Maine Farmland Trust, is a food bank farm that works to relieve hunger by growing vegetables for those in need, while collaborating with partners to distribute and increase access to quality and nutritious food.
