nh_family_dentisty_food_drive_graphic_2016_for_blog_postFall is upon us once again, and with the holidays drawing near, it’s time to be thankful for what we have and to extend our reach to those in our community who are less fortunate. Every year New Hampshire Family Dentistry is proud to host an annual food drive to benefit the New Hampshire Food Bank.

Did you know that 1 in 9 people in New Hampshire struggles with hunger, and that 1 in 5 children in the Manchester area don’t know where their next meal will come from? The NH Food Bank plays a role in fighting hunger by distributing food to over 400 partner agencies statewide. They are the primary source of food to pantries and soup kitchens around the granite state. In 2014 they distributed over 11 million pounds of food – equaling 9,166,666 meals!

We will be collecting non-perishable, dry and canned, food items at our office October 3rd thru November 15th.

The following is a list of recommended non-perishable items to donate

HIgh protein foods such as peanut butter, canned meats, canned beans and stews
Canned Luncheon Meats
Canned Vegetables
Canned Fruit and Juice
Breakfast Items such as cereal, pancake mix and oatmeal
Infant Formula and Baby Food
