HEAL's Bangor office has an emergency food pantry that

community members can access once every 90 days. 

HEAL clients who receive case management, are members of

our syringe exchange, or members of our LGBTQ+ support

groups may access the pantry once a week. Currently we

pickup food from Target, BJs, and Good Shepard Food Bank

on Wednesday mornings. Our Bangor office opens at 12:30 PM for the food pantry on Wednesdays.

Our food pantry is made possible by your generous donations! To make a donation, call 207.990.3626.
