About Us

Food AND Medicine is a non-profit organization located in Brewer, Maine. Our name comes from the belief that nobody should have to choose between paying for food, paying for medicine and paying for other basic necessities. Our work falls in three main areas: worker rights, access to local food, and laid-off worker issues.

We are affiliated* with Jobs with Justice and Interfaith Worker Justice.

*Note on our affiliations: Jobs with Justice and Interfaith Worker Justice are, by their nature, networks of diverse coalitions, made up of many groups that share support of workers’ rights, but do not share each others’ positions on all issues. Food AND Medicine does not endorse the positions or actions of the national networks or those of its other affiliations without explicitly deciding to do so.
