The Merrimack Supporting Local Food Pantries in Statewide #NHBanksGiveBack Campaign

Merrimack County Savings Bank (The Merrimack) is hosting a peanut butter and cereal drive throughout the month of October in partnership with #NHBanksGiveBack, a volunteer celebration organized by the NH Bankers Association. Peanut butter and cereal donations are often requested by food banks to ensure children struggling with food insecurity have access to healthy and nutritious meals.

“No child should have to worry about when or where their next meal will come from,” said Linda Lorden, President of The Merrimack. “Here in New Hampshire, 1 in 12 children face hunger, that’s why we are focusing our efforts on stocking our local pantries with convenient, nutrient-dense food children enjoy.”

Donations will be distributed to the following pantries:

  • Friendly Kitchen (Concord)
  • Twin Rivers Food Pantry (Franklin)
  • Bow Food Pantry
  • Hopkinton Food Pantry
  • Hooksett Food Pantry
  • Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter
  • The Upper Room Food Pantry (Derry)

To help make a difference locally, drop off peanut butter and cereal donations at any of The Merrimack’s eight locations.
