ROCKLAND, Maine — In keeping with their tradition, the Maine Lobster Festival continues to give back to community organizations in Midcoast Maine. Recently, the Board of Directors were pleased to present the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry with $750 toward their efforts.
The Camden Area Christian Food Pantry supports those in need in Camden, Rockport, Lincolnville, Hope, Appleton, Union, Washington, and Searsmont. Volunteers run all aspects of the pantry, including stocking food at their location on Mount Battie Street and delivering food to families unable to come to the pantry.
