University Credit Union Distributes Funds to Food Pantries Across Maine

ORONO, Maine (June 23, 2023) – UCU has recently been traveling around the state to present checks and distribute funds to a number of food pantries in our communities. With the help of UCU members, friends, the UCU team, and so many more, we’ve been able to raise funds in support of the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger.

Thank you to all who made this possible. It has been incredible to connect with our communities and continue to educate ourselves and others on the growing food insecurity faced by Mainers. Each food pantry exists for a reason – because they address a dire need in their community. We’re proud to support them, and continue to fight hunger in Maine.

The Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger has contributed over $12.3 million since 1990 to end hunger in the state – $1,000,434.19 just last year alone.
