FarmShare for

Homebound Seniors

PRFC's FarmShare for Homebound Seniors is  a seasonal delivery service that provides seniors who can't leave their homes with fresh, local produce. The program is modeled after Maine Senior Farmshare but the $50 shares are funded by private donations and PRFC's volunteers  bring the vegetables to the customer's door.

"Delivery day is my favorite day. The veggies look and smell so good and are so fresh. It makes me smile."

                             -Deanna, FSHS-recipient

1 in 3 Seniors in Piscataquis County don't have enough to eat. FSHS provides produce to seniors who can't leave their homes.
