SKOWHEGAN — The Somerset Grist Mill will accept food and cash contributions for the Skowhegan Food Cupboard during the month of September. The Greater Somerset Public Health Collaborative and United Way of Mid-Maine offer the program which connects local businesses and area food cupboards in an effort to provide nutritional support to those who live in the region. Main Street Skowhegan, Skowhegan Rotary, Madison Business Alliance and Norridgewock Chamber of Commerce have endorsed the project.

The anchor business for the building is Maine Grains which will mill local grains and sell grain products. Two other agriculture related businesses are housed in the building: The twice-weekly Skowhegan Farmers’ Market and The Pickup, which purchases food from 20 area farms for weekly deliveries of “shares” to community members.

The food collection shelves will be placed inside the Happyknits entrance to the building on Court Street. A can for cash donations to the Skowhegan Food Pantry is available on the Happyknits counter.
