Additionally, for every new member who joins at the Expo, one of our generous donors will contribute $25 to the HHRC. A portion of that $25 will go to Good Shepherd Food Bank which will then be able to provide 20 meals to Mainers struggling with hunger.

Since 1981, Good Shepherd Food-Bank has worked diligently to establish essential partnerships with many others concerned about ending needless hunger here in Maine. Be it an individual, church or civic group, small business or large corporation, by partnering together they have made huge strides towards their goal.
The Membership Expo will feature live music performed by jazz guitar duo, Peter Herman and Rurik Samuel Brackett.
Refreshments will be provided by UMA Chef, Kevin Michaud.
