Manchester, NH Metro Walls is happy to help spread some much-needed cheer this year by donating $40,000 to the New Hampshire Food Bank. This donation will help provide over 80,000 meals to those in need throughout the state.
Metro Walls has consistently donated to the Food Bank for years, but this year realized that donations were needed more than ever and decided to increase its contribution in 2020. Metro couldn’t be happier to give to such a worthy organization that offers so much help to local families.
“2020 has been a time of struggle, uncertainty and heartache for so many in our community. Many families are faced with tough challenges and the pandemic has made it so much worse this year. Having the opportunity to provide meals and comfort for those in need is something we are truly grateful for” said Mike Dion, president of Metro Walls.
The New Hampshire Food Bank reports that since the spread of COVID-19, N.H. has seen a staggering 69% increase in residents who are food insecure. There are approximately 1 in 7 men, women and children in New Hampshire who need meals, a projected 55,500 additional people and in total more than 181,090 across the state.
“We’ve distributed more food and have seen more families in need than we ever have before. It is because of the generous and continued support from individuals and businesses like Metro Walls that we are able to face those challenges and make sure that our neighbors do not have to worry about how to feed their family” said Eileen Liponis, Executive Director, New Hampshire Food Bank.
