AUBURN, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage has declared September to be Hunger Action Month in Maine.
His proclamation is supported by charities such as the Good Shepherd Food-Bank, which says 200,000 Maine residents live at risk of hunger, including one in every four children.
The food bank’s Rick Small says hunger is a serious problem in every community throughout Maine.
Good Shepherd is promoting a “Skip a Meal — Feed a Neighbor” pledge to raise awareness about hunger.
