The mission of the Bar Harbor Food Pantry is to provide a welcoming environment for the distribution of food and other household products free of charge to Hancock County residents in need.
The Bar Harbor Food Pantry has been serving under its name since 1996. Before that it had been run on an emergency basis only in the basement of the First Baptist Church. Today, with the support of local churches and other community organizations and individuals, we are able to help many families across Hancock County each month.
As an organization we plan to help celebrate the Acadia Centennial by creating posters that will teach the public about how the community came together to help feed and support the men that worked as the Civilian Conservation Corps and helped build our beautiful national park. We also plan on running a fashion show that focuses on what the men and woman of MDI in 1940 wore using clothing from Serendipity our clothing resale shop as part the Acadia Winter Festival.
