What We Do

Wayside has been increasing access to nutritious food to our neighbors in Southern Maine since 1986. Wayside’s hunger relief efforts include:

Through its Food Rescue Program, Wayside diverted 550 tons of edible food from the waste stream in 2019. Rescued food was distributed, free of charge, to 60 partners throughout Southern Maine including food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other social service agencies.
