Gorham food pantry distributes Thanksgiving meals

Maureen Hackett has a vision to feed the hungry.

It was that vision that resulted in the creation of the Gorham United Methodist Church Food Pantry, which opened its doors on Aug. 15 in a lower level room of the church on South Street.

“If you’re hungry, we want to feed you,” said Hackett, a retired medical secretary and Gorham resident.
