Breaking the bread, the fellowship of a free meal is important in small rural Maine.
No one should be alone during the holidays. Especially at meal time. Around Maine this Christmas season there are free dinners, meals planned.
Local vendors, area businesses pitch in collectively with churches, non profit service providers to set the table for a Maine Christmas dinner.
One free Christmas dinner in Rockland covered by the Bangor Deadly recently. Restaurants donating the appetizers, desserts. Locally sourced farms providing the poultry, the grown close to home veggies, fruits.

It is not just the folks coming in one by one, single file off the streets that are being served something tasty. What happens inside of the volunteers putting on the meal, working behind the scenes get spiritual fed. Helping others, helping themselves thinking of others.
