Community Resources

 
Wayside Food Programs is part of a strong network of agencies that offer food and other basic needs assistance to our community. If you are looking for help with locating or accessing food pantries or social services, we would be happy to assist you. Below you will find a list of Portland and Cumberland County food pantries and programs, as well as additional resources throughout the state. If you need further assistance, please contact our office at (207) 775-4939. 
 
**We are working hard to support our partner agencies during this time. Please note that most pantries that are remaining open are moving to an emergency food model, so please be prepared for a different distribution system as well as potentially less of a variety of foods you are accustomed to. Please keep in mind that any changes have not been made lightly and are being made with the safety and health of all community members in mind. If you feel sick, please refrain from visiting a pantry. If you are sick and need food, please call us at (207) 775-4939. Please note that we are working limited office hours at this time so please leave a message and we will return your call.**
