In New Hampshire, one in nine residents struggle with hunger and 42,000 children are lacking reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. The Leadership Solutions Group team at our corporate headquarters in Nashua, NH recently joined the legion of volunteers required to support these less fortunate residents of this state by dedicating their time to the New Hampshire Food Bank’s Food Rescue Program.
Together, this hard-working team sorted 9,064 pounds of meat and other frozen products into 293 cases to be distributed to agencies throughout New Hampshire. These efforts produced approximately 7,500 meals to assist our state’s residents.
We are lucky to live in one of the richest countries in the world where volunteers can extend that wealth in the form of food for those in need. Ending hunger in New Hampshire, and across our country, depends on the volunteer work of literally millions of Americans. It’s just a matter of enough of us making the choice to help. This group of Skillsoft employees made that choice and had a great time doing it!
