School Spirit Challenge helps Good Shepherd Food Bank feed Maine families in need
It's the kick off to season 10 of the School Spirit Challenge.
CBS 13 is beginning this season at the Good Shepherd Food Bank, which is where the donations collected over the next two months will end up.
As the largest hunger relief organization in Maine, the Good Shepherd Food Bank provides for Mainers facing hunger by distributing nutritious food to more than 400 partner agencies across the state, including food pantries, meal sites, and youth programs.
Maine currently ranks 9th worst in the nation and 1st in New England in terms of food insecurity.
In 2017, the food bank distributed 24 million meals to families, children, and seniors in need throughout Maine.
