Now at a new location on the corner of Bates and Walnut Streets, the Food Pantry remains conveniently located in the heart of downtown Lewiston. In addition to obtaining and distributing food to the thousands of individuals seeking assistance from the Food Pantry, our director, Joyce Gagnon, serves as a catalyst to direct clients to alternative sources of assistance, both financial and supportive. Joyce elaborates, "Into each box of food we distribute, we always add our prayers, our support, and our hope for a better tomorrow." Open Monday-Friday from 9-11am.
Trinity Jubilee Center
Lewiston, ME 04240
207.782.5700
Details: Meals are served seven days a week and we strive to provide a balanced, filling meal of vegetables, meats, starches and dairy, as well as drinks and desser. These meals are often the only hot meal our patrons eat each day and many return for seconds. Anyone is welcome to eat at Trinity and thousands of people, including parents and children, the elderly, disabled, veterans, and people struggling with mental illness and addiction, eat at Trinity each year. Hundreds of pounds of food are prepared each week as each meal serves 80-100 plates. The food pantry is open weekly and each week almost 200-250 families receive food and diapers. The majority of the food available is fresh produce, as well as canned vegetables, fruits, and meats. The food comes from the USDA and from our partnership with the Good Shepherd Food Bank, which allows us to purchase discounted nonperishable foods and free fresh foods at their Auburn warehouse. We also benefit from food drives held by local congregations and schools, including Temple Shalom in Auburn and the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Church, and from collaborating with large events, such as the Dempsey Challenge, to accept excess food.
