VA Truck that will be delivering food at Bridgton Community Center site on June 17th

FOOD4VETS a program funded by The New England Patriot’s organization is hosting major food distribution sites in Maine (and New England) for Veterans and their families who may be food insecure. This is a multi-organization collaboration with the New England Patriots partnering with 222cares and the VET Center in Lewiston to deliver boxes of food to the Lewiston and Brunswick areas. The American Legion Post 67 Bridgton has asked to expand this coverage to include Bridgton. Plans are to have the site up for distribution on Wednesday, June 17th at the Bridgton Community Center 25 Depot St. in the afternoon from 2 pm to 5 pm.  A box of food will be provided to each family member registered. Two individuals in the family, two boxes etc. Families in which the veteran has passed away may still register provided they have the DD214 as proof of service. Vets or their families needing this support must register for food on the 222cares.org website and present a DD214 or proof of service at the time of food pick-up. . Please pass this info on to all veterans in need of this support. For more information please contact:  Commander Donald Mulcahy, [email protected] or call 207-890-8874
