The Quimby Family Foundation has been awarding yearly grants since 2005. We proudly partner with non-profits throughout the state of Maine to promote Human Wholeness. To us, Human Wholeness is physical, emotional, social, and spiritual health and we believe in the inherent value of nature to advance all four.

Twin Villages Foodbank Farm
Mission: Twin Villages Foodbank Farm grows vegetables using organic growing practices on two acres of land, located at the Damariscotta River Association’s Great Salt Bay Farm. All food produced is donated to food pantries and other low income food programs in Lincoln County.
QFF Grant: General operating support to assist with garden expansion and increasing storage capacity. This will allow TVFF to reach six total food pantries in Lincoln County and two additional summer meal programs for students. TVFF will continue to develop key pieces of farm infrastructure like a wash station, major barn repairs and distribution systems. Specifically, QFF grant funds will go toward staff support and early season supplies including seeds, soil amendments and greenhouse rental.
