The Good Food Council of Lewiston Auburn started as a project of the St. Mary’s Nutrition Center. The council grew out of the Community Food Assessment (CFA), an effort which included a number of community charrettes and informal gatherings to identify food access assets and challenges in Lewiston-Auburn.

In response to the CFA findings, the Good Food Council of Lewiston-Auburn was established to create and support improvements to the Lewiston-Auburn food system. Through education, advocacy, and community-based decision-making the Council works to shape a food system where our entire community of Lewiston-Auburn has access to good food.

The current Good Food Council of Lewiston-Auburn members represent a variety of businesses, agencies, and sectors. Councilors include:

  • Ginny Andrews, Western Maine Community Action, Auburn
  • Deborah Morrill Burd, St. Mary’s Health System, Lewiston – Chair
  • Erin Cinelli, Farmers’ Gate Market, Wales
  • Phil Doucette, Austin Associates, Auburn
  • Belinda Gerry, City Council, Auburn
