The FA Maine Chapter of Eastern Area Intergroup (EAI) is made up of FA members who are committed to doing service to help reach food addicts in Maine and New Hampshire. As a service body, the Chapter provides support to affiliated meetings located within Maine and New Hampshire. Contacts from our meetings, and other interested members, gather monthly to share experience, strength and hope, to discuss issues that confront our meetings, and to generate new ideas on how we can better reach food addicts on a local and regional level. All FA members are welcome at the Maine Chapter’s monthly meeting.
The Maine Chapter of FA began in 2002 when a need for coordinated service opportunities became apparent. Organizing as a chapter of the Eastern Area Intergroup of FA allows us to function as a nonprofit entity operating under EAI bylaws, and to benefit from EAI’s years of experience and resources. Currently, the Maine Chapter offers such services as a toll-free informational phone line, a monthly directory of area meetings, assistance with public information outreach and more.
