Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, the number of people and families in Maine who are food insecure is higher than Maine's ever seen. More and more people are using local food banks to put dinner on their tables. Many of these same people have lost their jobs due to businesses closing.

On Saturday, February 20th, Manchester Motors is hosting a Veterans Initiative food drive. It will take place at Manchester Motors, located at 1031 Western Ave in Manchester, and will run from 9 am to 2 pm. The first 50 people to donate will receive a spring treat bag.

As a community, it is our responsibility now more than ever to help those around us. That's why I am encouraging you to check your cabinets or pantry at home for that extra box of pasta or soup that you're not using. Or, if you're able, grab a few extra items on your next shopping trip and donate them.

Veterans Food Drive

Any donations collected will go directly to the Augusta Food Bank. Manchester Motors and SJSA Housing LLC sponsor this event.
