Sabattus Food Pantry

A Community Resource for the
Greater Sabattus Area

Based on the gospel of Jesus’ miraculous multiplication of the loaves and fishes, our helping network began in 1997. Sister Lucille Fournier established a program to provide assistance to people in crisis in the Sabattus, Maine, area. Since then, the Dominican Sisters have been sponsoring Loaves & Fishes, and the Sister’s Convent has since been its home.

Through our partnerships with Good Shepherd Food Bank, Hannaford Supermarkets, the USDA, local businesses, farmers and gardeners – we are pleased to be able to provide a valuable resource for those living in our communities.

Currently, we are able to serve residents living in the greater Sabattus area

(Sabattus, Wales, Litchfield, Greene, Turner, Leeds, Lisbon, and Monmouth).

Our Food Pantry is open:

Mondays, 10:30 – 11:30

Tuesdays, 09:00 – 10:00

Wednesdays, 09:00 – 10:00

and is located at 61 Lisbon Road in Sabattus, Maine.

Call Loaves & Fishes today at (207) 375-8399 for more information.

on Donations and Pick-up

Cleaning house? Hidden Treasures in Lewiston, Maine is always happy to discuss drop-off or pick-up options that work best for you. Donating is great for those moving and cannot take their larger items with them, or for home and business owners looking to downsize. Our volunteers will work with you to either get the items from you, or we can arrange a drop-off time.

Financial Aid Office for Struggling Families and Individuals

Families in the Sabattus area who are struggling financially can count on Loaves & Fishes and the Dominican Sisters for assistance. Our team can help local residents find emergency financial help for lodging, heating, utilities, and medical expenses.

At the interview, persons applying for assistance will need to present a summary of their income and expenses. In addition, they must bring proof of their identity, and a list of other agencies they have contacted.

The possibility for financial assistance will be communicated to the interested parties within 72 hours.

Volunteer with Loaves & Fishes

The staff of Loaves & Fishes consists of a group of volunteers and a Board of Directors who dedicate their time to helping others. We rely on local community members, active and retired business professionals, and recipients of Loaves & Fishes assistance to work with the Sisters and help to provide to those in need. 

Without our valued volunteers and directors, we would not be able to do what we do. Our volunteers also raise money through fundraisers and generous donations, including:
