November is National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Month

Families in Maine are hungry.

The Campaign for Ending Hunger Walking Tour happens across Maine during the month of November to bring awareness to Maine's hunger problem. November has been designated as National Hunger and Homeless Awareness month, and is part of the larger Campaign.  "Maine has the highest incidence of food insecurity in New England, and one of the highest nationwide.  Nearly 15% of the population does not have enough to eat, including 1 in 4 Maine children.  Part of the mission of the Maine Credit Unions' Campaign for Ending Hunger is to not only raise funds to help reduce hunger in Maine but to also raise awareness about the problem of hunger in Maine," explained Jon Paradise, Vice President of Governmental & Public Affairs for the Maine Credit Union League.

Walk with us.

Brenda Davis, one of Maine's leading end hunger advocates, is walking over 1,500 miles across the state in partnership with Maine's credit unions to bring awareness to the issue. The walk is an integral part of fundraising and awareness for the issue of food insecurity. You can join us on the walk on December 3rd. The final stretch is from Brewer Federal Credit Union to the University Credit Union in Orono.
