Tree of Life is a nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to providing emergency and supplemental food for the community, providing and selling good used clothing, and fostering self-help and education on the Blue Hill Peninsula.
The Tree of Life Food Pantry and TurnStyle Thrift Shop work together as a unique, self-supporting organization. Sale of good quality used clothing at the TurnStyle is the primary source of funding, along with donations, for the Food Pantry.
Food is given free of charge to citizens from the eight towns on the Blue Hill Peninsula: Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Orland, Penobscot, Sedgwick and Surry. No one in need of food is turned away. Currently over 900 families are registered. About 212 families come in for food each week.
