Seeking Maine loggers to share pics of what they eat to get through a long work day
Maine loggers work 11 hours a day on average and commute over an hour to their job sites, according to findings from the Maine Logger Health and Safety project. That can make it hard to find time for regular meals.
The NEC team is looking for Maine loggers to share firsthand what they eat to get through a typical workday. It's simple. Submit a single photo—of breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, or drinks—with a short text or voice memo. Do this at least once a week for six weeks. Loggers who sign up will receive a total of $100 in LLBean gift cards for participating. For more information, contact a staff member at 607-222-3614 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
