Anonymous Donor Again Helps New Hampshire Food Bank


U.S. News & World Report

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — An anonymous donor who already has given the New Hampshire Food Bank $275,000 in recent years is prepared to give another $100,000.

Food bank officials say the donor will match each dollar given to the program through the end of the year, up to $100,000. The $200,000 total would be enough to pay for 400,000 meals.

The food bank is a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire and distributes food to a statewide network of more than 400 agencies. By year's end, it expects to have distributed more than 14 million pounds of food.

The donation was part of the annual WMUR Spirit of Giving Food Drive.
