Join Solar Donates $25,000 To Good Shepherd Food Bank of Maine

Community Involvement


We are very happy to announce our first Brighter Future Nonprofit recipient. As a thank you to new community solar members in Maine, Join Solar gave back $25,000 to the Good Shepherd Food Bank of Maine in August. These funds provide 75,000-149,999 meals to people facing food insecurity across Maine throughout its statewide partner agency network of food pantries, meal sites, shelters, schools, health centers, and other community organizations.

This donation is made possible by the Brighter Future initiative that empowers communities we serve by donating a portion of proceeds generated by each community solar farm to local nonprofits serving children.

A little about our Brighter Future partner, Good Shepherd Food Bank, is working toward a bold goal, by 2025, all Mainers facing hunger will have access to the nutritious food they need to thrive, when and where they need it. The Food Bank is helping to stabilize the lives of people facing food insecurity, reduce the impact of hunger in our state, and make Maine a stronger, more resilient place to work and live.

Every Mainer has a role to play in the fight against hunger, from personal donations of time or funds to becoming an active community member. To address the barriers that perpetuate food insecurity, we must work together to start normalizing conversations about hunger in our state and commit to ending hunger.
