Other Programs and Partnerships to Address Food Insecurity

Wayside is combating food insecurity in Cumberland County on a number of fronts


Wayside maintains a raised bed garden at its Walton Street facility to grow fresh vegetables and herbs for use in its community kitchen. Volunteers help maintain the garden throughout the growing season. Our garden is part of the Maine Harvest for Hunger Network. In addition to our 7 raised beds, we also maintain a Pollinator Garden and are members of the Portland Pollinator Partnership.
