Holiday Food Basket Project

46th Annual Capital Region Food Program’s Holiday Food Basket Project

Preparations are well underway for the Capital Region Food Program’s (CRFP) 46th Annual Holiday Food Basket Project. This year’s project will kick off on Tuesday, December 17 and run through the 26th of December.

In its mission to fight hunger insecurity in Concord and the surrounding 17 communities over the past four decades, the CRFP has distributed more than 3,200 tons of food through its Holiday Food Basket (HFBP) and Year Round Distribution Projects (YRDP).

The Capital Region Food Program is not a food bank.  It is a private, not-for-profit, 100% volunteer organization with NO PAID STAFF! All food distributed through the HFBP and YRDP is done at no cost to the recipients and/or partnering agencies.

The 18 local communities served by the CRFP include: Allenstown, Boscawen, Bow, Canterbury, Chichester, Concord, Contoocook, Dunbarton, Epsom, Hopkinton, Loudon, Pembroke, Penacook, Pittsfield, Salisbury, Suncook, Warner, and Webster.

Of important note is that 100% of every dollar contributed to the Capital Region Food Program is used to purchase food. Any supplies, services, and expertise that is needed is underwritten or provided as in-kind services by area businesses, organizations, and individuals.

Whether you donate to the Capital Region Food Program monetarily or through volunteering your time, you are directly helping community members of the Capital Region year round.
