MaineHealth Food Pantry at Stephens - COMING SOON SUMMER 2021

MaineHealth is partnering with Good Shepherd Food Bank to open its first hospital-affiliated food pantries in Farmington and Norway, Maine. Establishing food pantries as part of our services as a health care organization is a natural part of our continuum of care in our communities.
MaineHealth Food Pantry at Stephens Memorial Hospital 

In Maine, one out of every five children and one out of every ten people are food insecure. Food insecurity means not having reliable access to affordable, healthy food. Our goal is to offer a variety of fresh, frozen, and shelf-stable foods free for our care team members, patients, and their entire households.

We know that many Mainers have a hard time accessing food and we hope this resource will give those in need reliable access to food that supports their health and wellbeing.

Those using our food pantry will be identified through a screening process in our practices and hospital departments and referred to the program.

Visiting the Food Pantry

Visitors will find the pantry welcoming and confidential, with helpful staff and healthy food options, including local produce. Our team will talk with you about your household needs and provide you with one week’s worth of food per visit.

The MaineHealth Food Pantry at Stephens is conveniently located in the Ripley Medical Office Building at 193 Main Street, Norway, Maine – on the Stephens Memorial Hospital campus in Norway.
