The Keene Sentinel and the Monadnock Food Pantries Collective are teaming up in April to fundraise for local organizations that support our neighbors experiencing food insecurity.
This Sunday, April 23, representatives from The Sentinel and the Monadnock Food Pantries Collective will collect food to help support the campaign. Volunteers will be outside Hannaford and the Monadnock Food Co-op in Keene and Market Basket in Swanzey from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donation bins will be at those same locations through the end of the day.
The inaugural News & Nourishment campaign aims to collect $15,000 during the month of April, as donations to food pantries typically dwindle after the holiday season. This money will support the eight local nonprofits that make up the collective. All donations should be directed to The Community Kitchen in Keene at thecommunitykitchen.org.
The Monadnock Food Pantries Collective, a funded initiative of the Monadnock United Way, includes eight pantries in all. Besides The Community Kitchen in Keene, the other pantries in the collective are St. Vincent de Paul in Keene, Joan’s Pantry in Chesterfield, Helping Hand in Troy, Jaffrey Food Pantry, Rindge Food Pantry, Federated Church of Marlborough and the Marlborough Food Pantry’s Kidz Cupboard.
