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.
