Maine State Credit Union Provides Meals for Hungry Mainers

The annual Feed Me 5k walk raised funds to provide over 190,000 meals

Augusta, ME – April 28, 2022– Maine State Credit Union is excited to announce that the annual FEED ME 5k walk to end hunger in Maine raised over $48,000 on Saturday, April 23, to help those in need. It was the first in-person walk since 2019. Maine State Credit Union has held a virtual event for two years.

"It was so nice to see everyone in person and the smiles on their faces," said Stacey Dow, co-chair of Social Responsibility at Maine State Credit Union. "We had over 100 people walk with us in person this year; it is nice to be back after having to make it a virtual event for the past couple of years."

The in-person Feed ME 5k walk starts a month-long walk event. People can still register online to participate in the virtual portion, which is open until May 31, 2022. Everyone who registers will receive a FEED ME 5k walk t-shirt.  

Maine State Credit Union raises money all year long for the ending hunger cause. This year the credit union hopes to raise over $100,000. Proceeds from the walk and other events go back into our local communities and are used to fund backpack programs, meals on wheels, and smaller town-based food pantries.

Sponsors for this year's walk include Cayer Security, the Element Group, Maine Credit Union League/Synergent, TriCorp Federal Credit Union, WH Demmons, Cross Insurance, GHM Insurance Agency, WGTech, WIPFLI, Charlie's Motor Mall, Alkami, Pannos Marketing, Glia, Anthem, Insurance Trust, Taylor, McCormack & Frame, Uncle Dean's, Steven & Day, LLP, Maine General, Harvest Time, ASG Angott, Sarah Dunckel & Associates, Rod's HVAC, Liberty Mutual, Norman, Hanson, & DeTroy, Korner Store & Deli, Priority Learning, Creative Imaging Group, Sprague & Curtis, and G & E Roofing.
