2018 Goals:

• Identify the infrastructure of food flow in our state to maximize our recovery and distribution.

• Further collaborate and advocate with community and statewide partners to pursue community-based solutions for statewide food security.

• Deepen our partnerships with our agencies to promote and educate for better health and nutrition for our clients.

• Source and distribute more nutrient-dense produce and protein to positively impact the health of our food insecure.

• Continue to expand statewide SNAP (Food Stamp Program) outreach to working families with children and seniors.

• Expand the distribution of Granite State Market Match to 50+ direct-to-consumer venues and distribute over $70,000 in nutrition incentives for fruits and vegetables.

• Increase the number of rural, child summer feeding programs to reach more children in need when they are out of their school lunch program.

• Secure a new, refrigerated truck to increase deliveries statewide.
