New Hampshire Food Bank - "Working Together We Can Solve Hunger"
Thank you for your contributions to the New Hampshire Food bank. Since 2013, the Chapter donated over 1,700 pounds of food.
A Bit of History
In November 2012, the board of directors started a Food Collection Program as a way of giving back to the New Hampshire Community. The New Hampshire Food Bank was selected because it distributes donated food items throughout the entire state of New Hampshire. The PMI New Hampshire Chapter supports project managers throughtout the state, so a state-wide program seemed most appropriate. The Chapter collects donations at chapter meetings and drops them off at the Food Bank distribution center in Manchester. The items are then re-distributed to food pantries, soup kitchens, and a network of organizations throughout the New Hampshire area who serve the needs of the people within their community.

- Approximately 10% of all men, women and children in the Granite State are food insecure, meaning they do not know where their next meal will come from.
- In New Hampshire, approximately 13% of children are living in food insecure environments.
- The Food Bank works with more than 425 partner agencies throughout the state.
