Nearly 95,000 NH residents across all corners of the state face food insecurity every day. This includes seniors unable to access enough food because of limited resources and growing levels of isolation, veterans who are struggling to afford basic needs or individuals and families who are unable to make ends meet.
Our goal is to improve food security with three specific populations – homebound seniors in Greater Manchester and Greater Nashua, veterans facing homelessness and hardship, and NH residents who work with our Community Services program to improve their overall financial situations.
Why This Matters
Here in New Hampshire, 94,450 residents face hunger on a daily basis.
Approximately 10,300 seniors in New Hampshire are at risk of food insecurity. Inadequate access to nutritious food threatens their physical health and overall well-being.
Approximately 11% of US veterans between the ages of 18 to 64 lived in households reporting food insecurity.
Monthly delivery of free groceries to homebound and low-income seniors, many of whom struggle to afford enough food and cannot reliably access food.
Assistance with food and other essentials, through a dedicated pantry for veterans who struggle to afford basic needs.
Financial assistance and case management for individuals and families whose economic situations prevent them from having enough food to live a healthy life.
