Our Mission

The Mission of the New Hampshire Food Bank is to feed hungry people by soliciting and effectively distributing grocery products and perishable foods, and offering innovative programs through a statewide network of approved agencies; by advocating for systemic change; and by educating the public about the nature of, and solutions to, problems of hunger in New Hampshire.

What is a Food Bank?

A food bank is the center of food collection and distribution in a community. In essence, food banks collect, sort and re-distribute food to the community. Traditionally, a food bank does not distribute food directly to those in need. Instead, food banks serve an extensive network of organizations in their respective communities. These organizations serve one part of the community and know the needs of the people there.

Working Together We Can Solve Hunger

New Hampshire Food Bank is committed to helping people in need, but we can’t do it without you. If you believe that no one should go hungry in America, take the pledge to help solve hunger.
