The MaineHealth Food Pantry at Stephens provides healthy food to referred MaineHealth patients and care team members who are experiencing food insecurity. In Maine, one out of every five children and one out of every ten people do not have reliable access to affordable, healthy food. Our welcoming and confidential pantry provides a variety of free, fresh, frozen and shelf-stable foods that support health and well-being in our community. The food pantry is made possible through a partnership with Good Shepherd Food Bank.
