Maine Gov Opens Up Blaine House For Food Drive 

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Gov. Paul LePage and his wife are opening up the Blaine House for a food drive for the third straight year to help needy Mainers put food on the table.

The annual Blaine House Food Drive kicks off Saturday and continues the following two Saturdays.

People are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to the governor’s residence between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The food will be donated to the Good Shepherd Food Bank at the end of the three-week drive.

People who donate will get a tour of the Blaine House, enjoy light refreshments and meet with the governor and his wife.
