Collecting Pasta for NH Food Bank

May 1st, 2010 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Main Branch, News

It’s been a year since the library collected pasta for the New Hampshire Food Bank.

And we’re doing it again!

During the month of May, the library will be accepting donations of pasta to support the efforts of the New Hampshire Food Bank. We’ll take boxes of pasta, bags of pasta, canned pasta, whole wheat pasta, gluten-free pasta, spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, and any other kind of pasta you can find! You can drop off donations at either the main Library, 405 Pine Street, or the West Manchester Community Library, 76 North Main Street.

In 2009 the New Hampshire Food Bank distributed over 5.8 million pounds of donated, surplus food to over 350 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, day care centers, senior citizen homes and substance abuse treatment centers. These member agencies in turn provide services to the nearly 127,200 hungry men, women and children per year throughout New Hampshire.

Contact Steve Viggiano at 624-6550 x 323 or sviggiano@manchesternh.gov for more information.
