About the Program
The NH Food Bank in partnership with the NH Food Alliance, NH Farm Bureau and NOFA-NH are proud to announce the pilot launch of “NH Feeding NH” a statewide initiative designed to support the purchase of NH grown food to feed our food insecure neighbors with nutritious locally grown produce throughout NH communities during COVID-19 and beyond, something we believe every Granite Stater should have access to.
While unemployment continues to rise, many restaurants, schools and farmers markets are closed across the state, which also means many of our farms have lost their outlet to sell their product. This program, modeled after our neighbors in Vermont and Maine, will not only support our local farmers, but will also help nourish communities in need, reduce food waste and replenish our local economy.
How Does it Work?
The NH Food Bank has more than 400 partner agencies across the state of NH including food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, children’s programs, senior centers and more. NH Feeding NH will connect these agencies and local farmers in their area to create partnerships and provide them with the funding to purchase more fresh, local, fruits and vegetables. Our agencies will then track and report success back to the NH Food Bank so that we may continue to improve and grow this program.
