Good Shepherd Food Bank’s Food Mobile will distribute food, including fresh produce, meat and non-perishable items to people in need of emergency food assistance in the greater Belgrade area from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, at the Belgrade Regional Health Center, 4 Clement Way, according to a news release from HealthReach Community Health Centers, based in Waterville.

The program is for anyone in need of food resources, experiencing food insecurity or having difficulty keeping healthy food on the table.

The health center serves residents of Belgrade, Mount Vernon, Augusta, Rome, Oakland, Sidney, Belgrade Lakes, Waterville and neighboring towns.

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