BANGOR, Maine — The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen at the Bangor Salvation Army welcomes those who have lost power due to the storm to come for free meals to help tide them over until their electricity is restored, and beyond if necessary. Lunch is served each day from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is available to anyone who has need.
Bangor Hydro reported on Monday morning that more than 20,000 customers were without power. This creates a hardship for those who are unable to prepare meals for themselves and their families. The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen provides a hot lunch every Monday through Friday from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and breakfast on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. at The Salvation Army’s main offices at 65 South Park Street in Bangor. Meals are available for anyone who feels they have need regardless of circumstance.
Prior to the arrival of Hurricane Irene, The Salvation Army in Bangor was stocked up and prepared to respond should the need arise. The Emergency Disaster Services Canteen (mobile kitchen) was stocked and ready to serve if called upon by local emergency responders. Salvation Army volunteers were also prepared to assist with disaster response if needed.
