Food Security Database Coordinator
The Food Security Resource Guide is a project of the Healthy Food for All Council. This database will be an online platform to provide information on food access and nutrition education programs in Maine. This is a part-time position with a limited time frame.
Using the Maine Food Atlas to build the database, this project will develop and promote a searchable online platform to be used by practitioners and social service providers to better connect those in need with available programs.
