Thanks for celebrating the First Annual Maine Gleaning Week and World Food Day with us! NRCM and our partners in the Maine Gleaning Network and Food Recovery Coalition and others collaborated on this free event at the Portland Public Library on Monday, October 16th. We hope you were inspired by Maine’s food recovery leaders and enjoyed celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s new film, “Wasted: The Story of Food Waste.”
The event included keynotes by Kristen Miale, President of Good Shepherd Food Bank and Steven M. Finn of University of Pennsylvania, LeanPath. We also talked about World Food Day and Maine Gleaning Week, and had time to mingle with other guests to enjoy light refreshment, including food gleaned from local Maine farms.
