Maine Harvest for Hunger Conserves Resources – Helping Maine People and the Environment!

Image Description: Maine Harvest for Hunger conserves resources - helping Maine people and the environment! Harvest for Hunger volunteers gather surplus produce that would otherwise be fed to livestock, tilled in or thrown out. This helps feed hungry Mainers and utilizes the nitrogen and water that was used to grow the food (numbers based on 2011 totals): 1,700 lbs nitrogen fertilizer; 244,000 lbs gleaned and surplus food; 2.3 million gallons H2O.
