About Us

Overview of the Nutrition Center:  

The St. Mary's Nutrition Center (NC) has a twenty-year history of promoting community health and wellness in greater Lewiston-Auburn, Maine. Located in the heart of downtown Lewiston, the NC serves as a healthy food hub for neighborhood residents. The NC is home to integrated programs which include: an emergency food pantry; urban community gardens; school garden and cooking programs; cooking education programs for adults; leadership development and training programs for young people; Lewiston farmers' market; the Good Food Bus mobile market, and other food access programs. 

The Nutrition Center brings people together to collectively imagine and build a just food system and healthy community. We envision a just and vibrant Lewiston-Auburn where neighbors care for each other and come together across differences to ensure every person has good food, a sense of purpose and belonging, and opportunities to thrive.  

We work with our community to: 

  • Make healthy and local food accessible and affordable; 
  • Grow gardens and support local farmers; 
  • Cultivate partnerships with young people as engaged leaders and changemakers; 
  • Create opportunities for people with diverse experiences to learn and share with each other; and 
  • Build vibrant neighborhoods and deepen connection between people, place, and the land
