NH Food Bank Kicks-Off 7th Annual Nothing Campaign April 12, generously supported by Citizens Bank
1 in 9 NH residents, including approximately 11% of children, do not know where their next meal will come from. For many, it is a choice between medical care, paying their rent, utilities, heat or buying food. Unfortunately, the numbers continue to rise. In 2018, the NH Food Bank distributed more than 14.1 million pounds of food to over 425 partner agencies throughout the state.
We live in one of the richest countries in the world, and have more than enough food to feed everyone. It’s just a matter of enough of us making the decision to help. While some think that nothing can be done to solve the issue of hunger, the NH Food Bank believes that we can all do something to ensure everyone in the state has enough food to eat.
Nothing is a stark reality for hundreds of thousands of New Hampshire residents every day, but today, Nothing is also a way to help end hunger in NH. The New Hampshire Food Bank, in partnership with Citizens Bank®, has come together with NH grocery partners in the fight against hunger and want to get individuals, businesses and organizations involved in the effort as well.
Do Something About Nothing
In partnership with Citizens Bank and with the support of NH Food Bank’s grocery partners, Granite Staters can help make a difference, starting April 6 and through May 31 purchase Nothing cans for $5 at participating Hannaford®, Harvest Market®, Market Basket®, Shaw’s®, Sully’s Superette® in Allenstown and Goffstown and Vista Foods® in Laconia. Each Nothing can purchased will provide 10 meals, and cans filled with generous donations can help provide 60 meals to your neighbor that faces hunger every day.
