Food Banks: NH Gives at Christmas, But Hunger Lasts Year-Round

December 24, 2007

Manchester, NH – The cupboards are bare at New Hampshire food pantries, but it's never too late in the holiday season to help. Donations have been up as usual around this time of year, but demand also has spiked - and it's outrunning supply.

Michelle Garron with the New Hampshire Food Bank says things are especially tough this year, because the high costs of housing, fuel, and medical care leave families with less money for food. She says the problem is hitting children hard.

"We see a lot of single-parent households, whether it's one mother, one father, with one or two children. Those are the people we're seeing."

Garron says residents are stepping up with donations, but hams and turkeys, along with staples, are still in short supply. The best way to help, according to Garron, is with contributions to neighborhood food pantries.

While food pantries appreciate all the donations they receive at this time of year, Garron says her holiday wish is that people think of them in the coming summer too, when kids don't get free or subsidized meals at school.

"It would be great if people would maybe donate now at the holiday season, but just remember us in June and July when we're still fighting hunger."

More information on how to help is available online, at: www.nhfoodbank.org.
