Media advance Maine Hunger Dialogue
The Bangor Daily News, Centralmaine.com and The County advanced the virtual Maine Hunger Dialogue scheduled for 10–11 a.m. Oct. 23. “The goal of the Maine Hunger Dialogue is to inspire students from the state’s public and private universities and colleges, including community colleges, to learn, share ideas, network and work together to fight hunger across Maine,” said Frank Wertheim, University of Maine Cooperative Extension associate professor and committee chair of the Maine Hunger Dialogue. This event evolved from the UMaine Extension program, Harvest for Hunger, which since 2000, has donated more than three million pounds of surplus fruits and vegetables to individuals, soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters across Maine.
