One of the most important initiatives volunteers have at the Ecumenical Food Pantry is preparing Thanksgiving baskets for those who are food-challenged in Lincoln County.
In 2021, 240 families in the towns of Alna, Bremen, Bristol, Damariscotta, Dresden, Newcastle, Nobleboro, South Bristol, Waldoboro, and Whitefield received a Thanksgiving basket. Residents who live in one of these towns should register at the local town hall to receive one this year.
