The CEO and staff are overpaid and their staff overhead is overwhelming. I will not donate to them anymore until the President and Chair of the board step down. They are a monopoly fleecing the state. Sad day.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

day to day operations. I have witnessed them be inefficient, ineffective, and not accountable to donors.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Remove management. Cut staff in half and actually serve the state and the donors efficiently.

The Good Shepherd Food Bank in Auburn, Maine is making a huge difference in the lives of many. Donated food is distributed to group homes, food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters. The volunteers contribute about $250,000.00 worth of work yearly based on minimum wage. Many businesses and organizations help with food drives,and donations. For every dollar donated $12.50 in food is provided for those in need.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

extend their services amny times over.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
