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 our volunteers and staff bring the vegetables right to the customer's door.

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