Food Center Spotlight: Holly


Hi everyone! My name is Holly Rutherford and I am Piscataquis Regional Food Center's new Goodwill Americorps VISTA. During my year-long term at the PR Food Center, I'll be working to serve folks in Piscataquis County! Our work here is about getting food "moving," meaning I'm here to help community members better access food and improve food security in the county.

I recently gradauted from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL with a degree in Environmental Science, and the concentration of my studies was sustainable agriculture. I have also been working seasonally on organic farms for about 4 years, primarily in Maine's midcoast region, but I've additionally worked and lived on farms in Central America. Food, in all of its aspects, (growing, cooking, eating, sharing) is one of my passions; I'm always looking for new plant-based recipes, seed-exchanges, and homesteading hacks. I'm so excited to be living in Sangerville this year, making connections with community members, and getting to know Central Maine!
