Feed the hungry is what we do.
Our brothers and sisters at Local 340 are collecting food for needy Mainers in Aroostook County for the third year in a row. Joint Council 10's truck will drive nearly the length of Maine, 341 miles from Kittery to Ft. Fairfield, collecting food along the way.
The Bangor Daily News has the story:
The Teamsters Local 340 Women’s Committee is heading up a statewide food drive to benefit Catholic Charities of Maine in Caribou. Through its “Feed the County” program, Catholic Charities supplies food to 24 food pantries in The County and maintains its own food bank.
As part of this year’s effort, Traci Place, a business agent for the union, said on Tuesday that a tractor-trailer will drive from Kittery to Fort Fairfield, making close to a dozen stops along the way so that members of South Portland-based Teamsters Local 340 can fill the rig with nonperishable food donations.
The truck’s final stop will be in Fort Fairfield, where it also will participate in the Maine Potato Blossom Parade on Saturday, July 16.
All donations will be delivered to Catholic Charities Maine Home Supplies and Food Bank in Caribou following the parade.
