2019 Membership Campaign

April 11, 2019

Our 2019 membership campaign is currently underway. We are a member-based organization, and we need you to become a member (or renew)! People pay what they can, with $35 being the suggested annual membership amount, $15 for seniors and students; some members pay a higher amount in solidarity with those who cannot afford dues at this time. If times are tight, join as a $0 member! Every member is critical to FAM being able to continue our work.

FAM membership benefits include: voting in Board member elections and giving us direct feedback at our Annual Meeting, receiving action alerts and information about FAM events and attending members-only trainings and educational events. The most important benefit, however, is being a part of this movement for making our region just and livable for all!

To become a member, make a secure online donation here, or email FAM@foodandmedicine.org to join as a $0 member or to let us know that you are mailing in your membership. Make checks payable to Food AND Medicine, and mail to 20 Ivers Street, Brewer, Maine 04412.

For more information on membership and/or to find out how to get involved, call us at 207-989-5860 or email FAM@foodandmedicine.org.
