Bar Harbor Bank & Trust concluded their 30th annual “Food for Good” community food drive on November 16, 2018.  This year the event took place in over 50 communities across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.  Prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, more than 5,000 food items were collected and delivered to 36 local food pantries spanning from Lubec, Maine to Brandon, Vermont.

“On behalf of the Bank, I would like to thank all community members who gave a gift of healthy food to our neighbors in need by donating to the food drive,” said Curtis Simard, President and CEO at Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.  “These gifts helped fill Thanksgiving food baskets and stock the shelves of local food pantries for the winter months ahead.”
