Once every four weeks, neighbors in small towns throughout Maine come together to do their grocery shopping in unusual places, such as farmhouses, town halls, grange halls, even a seaweed-packaging plant. They catch up with each other and sip coffee while they wait for their food. Then comes the sound of the approaching delivery truck…followed by a flurry of activity. Orders are checked and boxes are unloaded off the truck. Everyone lifts and sorts until the room fills with rows of bulk food. The shopping day won’t be done until every bit of that food finds a home.
