New Hampshire group launches mobile food pantries


Wednesday, July 05, 2017

A New Hampshire food bank has launched a series of mobile food pantries across the state, helped by a $1 million anonymous donation.

The New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire, says it is using $30,000 from the donation it received in December to launch the food pantries in Concord, Franklin, Plymouth, Lancaster and Alstead this summer. The first one was held Wednesday in Concord and the remaining pantries will be held July 15 in Franklin, July 22 in Plymouth, Aug. 19, in Lancaster and Aug. 29 in Alstead.

The executive director of the New Hampshire Food Bank, Eileen Liponis, says these mobile pantries are crucial tools in fighting hunger, especially in the summer which can be tough time for local pantries.
