Wolfe's Neck Farm gives back to the community
FREEPORT (WGME) -- Each week, Good Day Maine goes live from a high school to show what makes it so unique and to collect items for the Good Shepherd Food Bank.
There was no rally this week.
Some of the schools get some of their food to donate from Wolfe's Neck Farm in Freeport.
Giving back is a major part of the farm’s mission.
The farm actually received a $150,000, three-year grant to build a state-of-the art greenhouse so they can grow food all year long, which also helps out the local economy.
"It's so important to have those farm partnerships because that means local fresh food is going out to the food pantries all across the state. Many of those farms donate to the food bank and to the local pantries. The other thing that happens is that Good Shepherd Food Bank purchases food from these farms," says Clara Whitney.
The Good Day Maine crew will be live at Greely High School in Cumberland next week for the next school spirit challenge rally.
