Good Shepherd Food Bank’s Food Mobile will distribute food, including fresh produce, meat and non-perishable items, to people in need in the greater Belgrade area from 10:30 a.m. to noon Thursday, Feb. 14, at Belgrade Regional Health Center, 4 Clement Way off Route 27, in Belgrade.

Anyone in need of emergency food assistance is welcome to attend. The only information required is the number of people in the household. People are encouraged to bring their own box or bags, according to a news release from the Communications Department at HealthReach Community Health Centers.

Good Shepherd Food Bank’s Food Mobile program allows it to expand its outreach to Maine’s neediest and most underserved communities. Designed to be a low-barrier distribution, the food mobile visits communities with a demand for emergency and supplemental food that has outgrown the capacity of local food pantries.

This distribution has been made possible through the generosity of the Helen and George Ladd Charitable Corp.

For more information, call Belgrade Regional Health Center at 495-3323.

Belgrade offers a range of services including family medical care, counseling and care management to residents of Belgrade, Mount Vernon, Augusta, Rome, Oakland, Sidney, Belgrade Lakes, Waterville and neighboring towns.
