SKOWHEGAN — The Good Shepherd Food Bank took its mobile food pantry to Skowhegan recently, where 7,535 pounds of food, water and supplies were distributed to more than 100 area families in need.

The mobile food pantry rolled into the Skowhegan Community Food Pantry April 1 at 6 Cariani St., loaded with food and manpower.

The event was made possible by Dead River Company, as part of its ongoing commitment to help fight hunger throughout their service areas in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. In addition to financial support, five employees from the local Dead River joined other volunteers to help with the event.
