Tree of Life Food Pantry

Tree of Life Food Pantry provides food for the residents of the eight towns of the Blue Hill peninsula: Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Orland, Penobscot, Sedgwick, and Surry. However, residents who need food and who live in other towns may come to the Pantry for assistance on a more limited basis. No one is turned away. The atmosphere is warm and friendly.

TurnStyle Thrift Shop

The TurnStyle Thrift Shop sells high quality used clothing for women, men and children in addition to accessories and linens. Clothing donations are always welcome and only the best clothes are sold in the shop. Money from the TurnStyle is used to buy food for Tree of Life.

Weekly Stats

Pantry Statistics from Jan. 9, 2020 (compared with Jan. 10, 2019)

This week’s numbers comparison reflect a drop in usage for every category
except seniors which begs the question, how well are we serving the dietary
needs of our pantry users?
Food pantries in general (with enormous help from Good Shepherd) are
offering healthier foods than in years past. Examples include no salt added
canned goods, high fiber cereals and whole grain pastas, fresh fruits
(apples, bananas and oranges this week) and vegetables, etc. Limited
supplies of organic foods are also available for people with chemical
sensitivities and sugar substitutes for diabetics.
