Hyde School students volunteer with Good Shepherd Food Mobile

BATH — As part of Hyde School’s community service program, Hyde students are volunteering to help the Good Shepherd Food Mobile bring free food to needy families in the Mid-Coast area.

With the support of Grace Episcopal Church and community members, the food mobile offers fresh food and packaged groceries on the last Tuesday of each month, from 2-4 p.m., in the parking lot of the church.

In addition to volunteering, the Hyde community has also pledged to raise $1,000 for the food mobile program, allowing it to buy almost $9,000 worth of goods for those in need. To raise the funds, Hyde will hold a long-distance relay run from the Hyde Bath campus to the Hyde Woodstock campus in Connecticut. The event takes place at the beginning of Thanksgiving vacation, and is being spearheaded by faculty members Colin Foye and Peter Rowe.
