The mission of the Bar Harbor Food Pantry is to provide a welcoming environment for the distribution of food and other household products free of charge to Hancock County residents in need of assistance. It is our ultimate goal to end food insecurity in our community.
The Bar Harbor Food Pantry has been serving our community since1994. Before that it had been operating on an emergency basis in the basement of the First Baptist Church.
Today, with the support of local churches, community organizations and business, and individuals, we are able to help feed more than 300 households equalling over 800 individuals, across Hancock County throughout the year.
