Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program

In February 2024, Waterville Area Soup Kitchen was selected by our local Hannafords for their Reusable Bag Program. This program donated $1 to us for every Fight Hunger reusable bag bought from our local Hannafords during the month of February 2024.

The program raised $858!

Thank you Hannaford and to everyone who purchased a bag!

Thank you to KSB for the 2023 Catalyst Grant

Members of the Waterville Area Soup Kitchen’s Board of Directors were pleased to welcome Kennebec Savings Bank President and CEO Andrew Silsby and Vice President Amanda Cooley, along with members of the Catalyst Review and Selection Committee to the Lighthouse in early November for the presentation of KSB’s 2023 Catalyst Grant.  Bank officials were given a tour of the Lighthouse and especially the kitchen.

We are anxious to put this generous award to use. It will allow us to expand and upgrade our kitchen with additional cooking surfaces as well as some more commercial grade equipment. These improvements will allow our kitchen staff to more efficiently produce the meals necessary to meet the growing need in our community.   Thank you, KSB! We deeply appreciate your support.

Sincere thanks to:

Fr. Jacques Dolbec for a most generous donation to help upgrade our kitchen.

Camp Manitou - for more than 900 pounds of food as the camp closes for the season.

John T. Gorman Foundation for a $15,000. grant.

Maine Community Foundation for a $10,000. grant.

Bangor Savings Bank for a $4,000. grant.

Fortin's Home Furnishings for two refrigerator/freezers.
