CAM­BRIDGE — Main Street Gallery has a tra­di­tion of giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity dur­ing its an­nual “Art­ful Giv­ing” ex­hibit, a news re­lease states.

This year, Mid-Shore Meals Til Mon­day, a “back­pack” pro­gram that sends home nu­tri­tious meals and snacks to 350 Dorch­ester County school chil­dren, will be the re­cip­i­ent of the gallery’s giv­ing.

Un­til Dec. 15, Main Street Gallery is raf­fling off an un­ti­tled paint­ing by artist Danny Doughty.

Doughty, who lives and op­er­ates a gallery in Onan­cock, Va., is a well-known and sought af­ter vi­sion­ary folk artist. Doughty’s paint­ings are about the peo­ple and places that nur­tured him as he grew up in chal­leng­ing cir­cum­stances on Vir­ginia’s East­ern Shore, the re­lease states.

All pro­ceeds from the raf­fle of Doughty’s paint­ing will go to Mid-Shore Meals til Mon­day to help stock their pantr y with the healthy foods they pro­vide for chil­dren.

The draw­ing for the paint­ing will be at Main Street Gallery on Dec. 15, and you do not need to be present to win. Raf­fle tick­ets can be pur­chased at the gallery at

518 Po­plar St., or by call­ing
