New Hampshire Food Bank Grant
$5 million allocated to support NH Food Bank’s response to COVID-19
On May 15, 2020, the Governor authorized a direct emergency grant of $2 million to the NH Food Bank, with an additional $3 million in emergency funds to be held in reserve to address additional needs. In response to COVID-19, the NH Food Bank is working to increase food purchasing and meal production and provide additional needed resources. However, although distribution has increased, the NH Food Bank has seen fewer donations. This expenditure will support the NH Food Bank’s efforts in taking all necessary steps to address the rise of food insecurity across the state as a result of COVID-19.
