MANCHESTER — For the second year in a row, the New Hampshire Food Bank has been recognized as having the highest standards of excellence in food safety and sanitation, according to an audit by American Institute of Baking International, which conducts food safety auditing, said the nonprofit.

After a full day assessment of overall business practices, food and product safety and sanitation, the nonprofit was ranked as a “superior food safety” program.

“Having this ranking shows our strong commitment to our clients, partners and peers, being the best at what we do, providing food and outreach to those in need,” said Bruce Wilson, New Hampshire Food Bank director of operations, in a statement.

The Food Bank is a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire.
