Abstract

An update on the progress being made by the Lewiston-Auburn Community Market (LACM). LACM has secured funding for a market in the Tree Streets neighborhood where many New Mainers face food insecurity. The board of directors, which is composed of people speaking eight different languages and representing a diverse set of skills and experience, is seeking a building to house the market, and plans to hire a community organizer. LACM board vice president, Palmira Carvalho, is quoted. She said she is pleased to be part of a project that addresses the lack of good quality food for immigrants and will bring people together around food.
