Food and Medicine putting the finishing touches on Thanksgiving baskets Featured

BREWER - Thanksgiving is less than a week away and there are many Mainers who can't put food on the table for their families. Food and Medicine is helping to change that.

Each basket that Food and Medicine gives out can feed eight to10 people. What's impressive is the people making it happen.


More than 40 farms provided over 43,000 pounds of produce for the program.


Food and Medicine raised all the funds. Organizers said the goal is to make sure each family has a locally sourced high quality Thanksgiving meal to eat.
