Funds for food
The Capital Region Food Program received a $5,000 donation from Altria Group to support the organization’s efforts to reduce hunger insecurity in the greater Concord area this summer. The donation will support the Year-Round Distribution Project, in which the program purchases and donates nonperishable items annually to more than 30 local agencies. Summer months traditionally are low contribution months for both donated food items and funds.
