Concord Food baskets

In December, during the Capital Region Food Program’s 46th annual Holiday Food Basket Project, food baskets were distributed to 6,100 area residents in 18 communities. Each food basket contained items for a holiday meal as well as supplemental food items to assist residents in menu preparation for an additional two to three weeks. HFBP Chair Maria Manus Painchaud states, “As part of our 2019 program, over 58 tons of food was purchased by the Capital Region Food Program for distribution. An additional seven tons of food was donated by area schools, businesses, churches, and civic organizations and purchased by the CRFP for distribution. We remain grateful to our community for their continued support of our work to combat hunger in the Capital region.” In addition, 12 partner agencies received nearly 14 tons of both perishable and non-perishable food as part of the CRFP’s Year-Round Distribution Project on Dec. 26. Recipient agencies included: Boscawen Congregational Church, Centerpoint Food Pantry, Chichester Food Pantry, Christ the King Food Pantry – St. Vincent de Paul Society, Epsom Food Pantry, First Congregational Church Food Pantry, Friends of Forgotten Children, Gospel Light Food Pantry, Open Door Community Kitchen, St. Paul’s Church Food Pantry, Warner Community Action Program, and West Congregational Church Food Pantry.
