Ending Hunger in Maine VISTA Leader
In 2019, Maine committed itself to being hunger free by 2030. The Hunger Free Maine (HFM) initiative is housed within the Commissioner's Office of Maine's Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry (DACF), and it is guided by a broad-based Advisory Group of public and private agencies that are working to ensure all Maine people have consistent access to healthy food today and to eliminate the root causes of food insecurity for the future. The Maine VISTA project will seek to support the development of Maine's roadmap for ending hunger and build the capacity of public and private entities implementing that plan. All 185,000 of Maine's food insecure people stand to benefit from this work.
