Students at String Bean Farm School (pictured here) have been collecting candy to send to deployed soldiers and those recovering in various veterans’ hospitals.

The nursery school’s holiday fundraiser this year will benefit Maine Coast Fishermen’s Associaton’s Fishermen Feeding Mainers program. Watch MCFA’s social media and our website, for more details.

Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association (MCFA) is a community-based fisheries non-profit that works to protect our fishing heritage, businesses, the resource, and our coastal villages so that fishermen can earn a living on the water, provide a sustainable future for new fishermen, and continue offering healthy food harvested from the Gulf of Maine.

Fishermen Feeding Mainers is an MCFA program that purchases fish directly from fishermen at a fair price and donates it to local schools, food banks and community groups. The program has served over 400,000 meals to Mainers.
