Solidarity, not charity. We organize, support, and empower low-income and working-class people of Eastern Maine to address the root causes of poverty.
Food AND Medicine is a member-based regional grassroots nonprofit that organizes working-class and low-income people to address the root causes of poverty. Formed in 2002 by union members and allies following devastating job losses in Eastern Maine due to mill closures, Food AND Medicine operates on the belief that no one should be forced to choose between food, medicine and other basic necessities.
Food AND Medicine is the Maine chapter of Jobs with Justice, and is part of the Poor People’s Campaign.
