MaineHealth Food Pantry at Stephens Memorial Hospital

In Maine, one out of every five children and one out of every ten people do not have reliable access to affordable, healthy food. The MaineHealth Food Pantry at Stephens provides a safe and inclusive space that improves community access to nourishing food, local resources and social connection. There are no eligibility requirements. All are invited to visit this welcoming, confidential space that provides enough free, fresh, frozen and shelf-stable food to feed a household for up to one week. The food pantry is possible through a partnership with Good Shepherd Food Bank.

The pantry is located on the Stephens Memorial Hospital campus in the Ripley Medical Office Building at 193 Main Street, Norway, Maine. Our team will talk with you about your household needs and provide you with one week’s worth of food per visit.
