Music teacher taking action about hunger in Maine

Michael Arell, the director of music for Veazie Community School, is doing something in response to something he heard on the radio during his morning commute. At least 12 percent of Maine households were food insecure in 2019, higher than the national average, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

So what is Arell doing? He has self-recorded a Christmas Album and is selling it for $10 on his website. The proceeds will go to the Good Shepherd Food Bank.
