by Reagan Davenport

The Machias chapter of the Food Recovery Network (FRN) was established by Linda Barsanti as a senior project in 2015. Barsanti studied at the University of Maine at Machias and saw that more than 15 percent of Washington County households don’t have enough to eat, yet thousands of dollars worth of food from farms, restaurants and grocery stores is thrown away each year.
