    LincolnHealth has partnered with the United States Department of Agriculture and the Good Shepherd Food Bank to offer two Drive-Thru Farm Stands in Lincoln County next week, where anyone can pick up free local fruits and vegetables.

    On Tuesday, Sept. 29 from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., the farm stand will be at the Waldoboro Town Office parking area, 1600 Atlantic Highway. On Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 1 to 5:30 p.m., food distribution continues at the Whitefield Calvary Bible Baptist Church parking lot, 150 Grand Army Road.

    Locally grown fruits and vegetables, including potatoes, onions, carrots and apples will be a part of the large boxes that will be available to anyone who attends. To maintain social distancing and to follow safety guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, workers will be wearing masks and will place the food box in your vehicle.

    Thank you to our local farmers and partners who have made these free events possible.
