Here at Eastport Labor Of Love, we supply staples once a month in the form of a large box filled with shelf stable food and additionally, you are welcome to come in for perishable weekly vegetables, fruit, meat and fish all month long on Fridays. Just fill out a simple form to register with us and begin getting a nice healthy food supplement to help you and your family.
As instructors become available, we teach cooking, canning and pickling classes with even sauerkraut making in the mix. This helps people with home gardens preserve food so no electricity is needed for freezing as the Maine electric supply can be a bit erratic with winter storms.
We also have helped over two hundred households with heating assistance in our area.
For people wanting to donate, your donation will go directly toward heating local homes or feeding this community if you designate this with our donation button. Clicking on the button gives you several options directing your financial help to a specific account.
Consider partnering with us to help feed and bring heating assistance to our hard working families and elderly residents in this area.
Our Donate button is secure and will provide you with an acknowledgement and a receipt from our officially registered charity for tax purposes.
