Who We Are
Piscataquis Regional Food Center helps connect people with programs and services to help them get healthy food. PRFC also provides services and facilities for regional farms and home-based businesses that need help establishing or growing their markets. PRFC’s cornerstone program is a pilot project with Good Shepherd Food Bank to create a regional “redistribution” center that serves all of Piscataquis and surrounding towns, including Dexter. PRFC itself is not a food cupboard but it will help Good Shepherd and other donors provide more food and food assistance to regional food cupboards and their customers.
But PRFC is about more than moving food. We want to help people access all the programs and services they need to build and sustain healthy lives. To that end, whenever possible, PRFC partners with organizations and agencies that are already serving the Piscataquis region so we can help them become better connected with other providers that have similar or related goals. Through those improved connections, we can make all the services and programs more visible and accessible to the people who need them the most.
