Ending Hunger Campaign 2021

Brewer Federal Credit Union is pleased to join the Maine Credit Union League again in 2021.

June is National Hunger Awareness Month.
In Maine, June 1 marks the beginning of our month-long Campaign for Ending Hunger $100,000 Challenge – Maine credit unions will be working together to raise at least $100,000 in thirty days to benefit Good Shepherd Food Bank and local food pantries.
Even with COVID-19 restrictions lifting, the ongoing pandemic is still impacting food security for individuals and families across our state. Many people continue to struggle financially. Oftentimes, those financial struggles make it hard to put healthy meals on the table.
Children are particularly vulnerable to hunger, especially during the summer months. While school vacation provides a fun and restful break for many Maine children, for those without adequate access to food, summertime can be challenging. For some students, the meals they receive at school throughout the academic year are the only meals they eat all day!
