NHPR and the New Hampshire Food Bank: Working together with you
New Hampshire Public Radio listeners care deeply about their state – its news, arts, politics, its rich history and promising future. Listeners tune in to stories about the people across New Hampshire because they care about them most of all.
Now through Dec. 31 there’s a special opportunity to support both quality public radio and the food programs that serve our neighbors and friends who need it the most.
This year’s partnership of NHPR and the New Hampshire Food Bank again means that donations to public radio will help put food on the table for the 1 in 9 people living with food insecurity, including 12 percent of the state’s children.
Here’s how it works:
When you fill out your donation form supporting NHPR, instead of opting for your usual gift item, you can choose to provide meals to those in need. One example: A $13-a-month donation to your public radio station means 13 meals to fellow Granite Staters in need.
It gets better: On Giving Tuesday, Nov. 30, from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., NHPR will donate five more meals to the food bank on behalf of every member who makes a gift to support public radio. Whatever amount you donate will mean five more meals for NH families facing food insecurity.
Here’s how to be part of the partnership between NHPR and the NH Food Bank.
The New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire, relies on donations – it doesn’t receive federal or state funding for food distribution. Last year the agency and its donors were responsible for getting 17.7 million pounds of food (14,768,993 meals) to people through its food pantries, neighborhood centers, low-income housing sites, senior nutrition centers, family crisis centers, hospices, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after school programs, and day care centers.
