Tourney supports NH food bank

Workplace Benefit Solutions of Manchester, a HUB International company, and the New Hampshire Food Bank, raised $105,500 during the WBS Harvest Golf Classic on Sept. 18, to support the food bank, a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire.

In partnership with Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks, the New Hampshire Food Bank hosted Hunger Action Month in September. Hunger Action Month featured a series of events, initiatives and competitions, to urge people to take action to do something about hunger in New Hampshire and nationwide.

The money will help the food bank combat hunger throughout New Hampshire, where 10 percent of residents do not know where their next meal is coming from. During the past eight years, the golf tournament has raised a total of $455,500 to support the New Hampshire Food Bank. Nearly 130 golfers took part in this year’s event.
