Gov. Maggie Hassan was in Bedford on Wednesday morning to help kick off the New Hampshire Food Bank's "Nothing Campaign."
She visited the Harvest Market on Route 101 at 11 a.m. to encourage New Hampshire citizens to join the fight against food insecurity and thank the New Hampshire Food Bank, the New Hampshire Grocers Association, Citizens Bank and other partners of the "Nothing Campaign" for their efforts to strengthen New Hampshire’s families and communities.
In its second year, the New Hampshire Food Bank’s “Nothing Campaign” is designed to raise funds to fight hunger and heighten awareness around the state about the more than 140,000 New Hampshire residents who are food insecure.
Last year, the campaign raised more than $107,000 by selling cans of “Nothing” at retailers across the state for $5, which are then filled and returned with donations. For more information, visit http://nothing.org/nh/.
