Carsey School

New research from the University of New Hampshire shows many towns outside the I-93 corridor lack access to grocery stores and farm stands.

That’s among the findings of a new report from UNH’s Carsey School of Public Policy that maps every grocery store and farmers market across the state.

A new report out from UNH's Carsey School of Public Policy highlights the issue of child food insecurity in New Hampshire.

To be food insecure means that a child's household goes without access to healthy meals for a portion of the year. It points to data which show that in 2016, Coos County had the state's highest rate of child food insecurity at almost 18 percent.
