New Hampshire Food Bank starts campaign to buy cans of ‘Nothing’ to help the hungry
LONDONDERRY, New Hampshire — The New Hampshire Food Bank is starting its annual campaign to sell cans of “Nothing” to raise awareness and funds to alleviate hunger.
Cans of “Nothing” are being sold for a month at retailers across the state for $5. They can be filled and returned with donations.
The Food Bank says one in nine people in New Hampshire do not know when or where their next meal will come from. An estimated 135,000 people in New Hampshire are food insecure; about 44,440 of them are children.
Gov. Maggie Hassan and Citizens Bank President Joe Carelli are buying the first cans of “Northing” at a Market Basket in Londonderry on Tuesday morning.
