Why Pledge?

"As long as I enjoy the privilege of food security,
each time I shop for my own groceries I pledge to purchase
a healthy non-perishable food item for members of my
community who are food insecure."

Hunger Isn't Seasonal

Food donations drop drastically after the holidays and food banks all over the country struggle year round to obtain enough food to meet the ever-increasing need. In New Hampshire, for example, the number of people who experience food insecurity has increased 90% since 2006.

The New Hampshire Food Bank provides emergency food for an estimated 127,200 New Hampshire residents annually, and about 26,200 residents receive emergency food assistance in any given week. Letting go of the assumption that food insecurity is only a problem during the winter months is the first step to solving food insecurity and hunger in New Hampshire.

You can learn more about hunger in your area at Feeding America and No Kid Hungry, or visit our Food Resources page.

Donate One Item Every Time You Shop

The Perpetual Food Pledge is a commitment to purchase one healthy non-perishable food item every time you shop for groceries, and donate it to those in need in your community. By taking the pledge, and making it part of your regular routine, you become part of the sustainable solution to squashing hunger in New Hampshire. You can drop off your donation in a local grocery store, church, or food bank. You can also drop off your donation at Antioch University New England or Antioch University Los Angeles.

Take the pledge and help the hungry in your community!
