Local Food Distribution
Maine Black Community Development is working to meet the hunger and nutritional needs for Maine's growing low-income African/American Diaspora and Muslim communities through food and land justice efforts across the state. Some of our partners include Ummah Farm, Presente! Maine, Annabessacook Farm, and the Cumberland County Food Security Council.
While the US census consistently ranks our state as having the largest percentage of people identifying as white, Maine’s BIPOC communities are marginalized from economic and food security in a variety of unique ways. While the prevalence of food insecurity reported in 2018 among white non-Hispanic Households was 14.7%, the prevalence for people of color households was 28.3%.
MBCD is committed to improve the health and wellbeing of all Mainers through the distribution of local farm fresh food from across Maine. Please reach out to email@example.com if you are in need of food.
