Nothing Campaign raises more than $100,000 for NH Food Bank

Friday, September 5, 2014

MANCHESTER – Thanks to the generosity of thousands of New Hampshire residents, participating grocery stores and the Citizens Bank Foundation, the New Hampshire Food Bank’s Nothing Campaign has generated more than $100,000 in an effort to raise critical funds to combat hunger.

The campaign was created to highlight the harsh reality that 1 in 9 people in New Hampshire – including 44,440 children – have nothing to eat, and thus live in hunger.

“Nothing cans” were sold for $5 at all New Hampshire Hannaford, Shaw’s, Harvest Market, Jiffy Mart and Market Basket locations.

Donations were also collected at www.nothing.org/nh.

Gov. Maggie Hassan helped launch the campaign in March and purchased the first Nothing can. U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte also assisted in the effort by buying cans.
