For the last 20 years I have been donating over 3,000 pounds of organic vegetables each year to the Bath Food Bank. I was so impressed with what they are doing - both in the Soup Kitchen and the Food Pantry - that I volunteered to be the Treasurer and a member of the Board of Directors. In that role I saw and see even more what a great service this is.
Not only are they super efficient and caring at providing provisions and healthy meals; but also in involving the community in volunteering and in donating.
In short, this is a very heartfelt and competent organization. Bill

The Bath Area Food Bank includes a food pantry and a soup kitchen, the Kitchen Table.
I am so excited that a 20 year goal, to have the food pantry and soup kitchen located in the same building will be realized in March of 2017!!!
Without the support of local individuals, businesses, churches, organizations, towns, board members and employees, the Bath Area Food Bank would not be able to serve the area towns of Arroswic, Bath, Georgetown, Phippsburg, West Bath, and Woolwich. Thank- you for all of your generous support. You have made it possible for people to ship for food and enjoy delicious meals!!!

The Bath Area Food Bank Executive Director Kimberly Gates and members of the Board recognized that students do not learn well, if they are hungry. To help meet the needs of food insecure students; mini food pantries were started at the local high school and elementary schools. If the families of students have run low on food due to any number of reasons, these students have somewhere to turn, that helps them get through their days. A confidential way to them to get additional food to tide them over the weekend and vacations has been offered to food insecure students. This helps our future generation.

I have watched this small organization grow and thrive, ALWAYS trying to find new ways to find and feed the local hungry people - often people are nervous about asking for help. This place makes our neighbors feel welcome. And Kim Gates, the director, has made it one of her missions to get as many different groups (and individuals) in the area to come and man the Food Bank, meet the clients, and become transformed themselves through their volunteering. I wish every town in the country had such a good, efficient, loving group of people to take care of our neediest. Bless you all!
