Hungry for Health 2016 Raises Over $6,100 For Substance Prevention

Healthy Acadia would like to thank our incredible partners and community members for their support of Hungry for Health 2016.  The campaign raised more than $6,122.20* to support substance misuse prevention, education, and treatment programming across Hancock and Washington counties.

Healthy Acadia thanks the following generous community-minded restaurants for their support and leadership in Hungry for Health 2016: Choco-Latte, Flexit Café & Bakery, Freshies, Havana, Islesford Dock Restaurant, Marlintinis Bar and Grill, McKays Public House, Morning Glory Bakery, Riverside Takeout, Rose Eden Lobsters, Serendib, Siam Orchid, Burning Tree Restaurant, Pickled Wrinkle, and 44 Degrees North Restaurant. 

Between August 2016 and January 2017, these restaurants held fundraisers, contributed cash donations, or donated gift cards to increase substance awareness efforts on #GivingTuesday, the annual national day of giving. Each partnership has brought new awareness and resources to help turn the tide on the opioid epidemic throughout our communities.

Healthy Acadia is planning the launch of Hungry for Health 2017, an effort to challenge cancer Downeast. Stay tuned to learn about events starting in April and occurring throughout the year to come. To host an event, volunteer, or otherwise get involved, please contact Shoshona at or by calling 667-7171.
