CONCORD, N.H. — During the 34th Annual NH Farm and Forest Expo, held Friday and Saturday, February 17 and 18, attendees donated 445 pounds of non-perishable food to support the NH Food Bank. In addition to the food, attendees also donated $250 in cash.
“Since 2009, our attendees have donated over 3000 pounds of food in support of reducing hunger in New Hampshire,” states Expo Board Chair A.J. Dupere. “We continue to be grateful to support the NH Food Bank in their efforts.”
The non-profit New Hampshire Farm & Forest Exposition has been a winter standard since 1984. The Expo provides information and education on all aspects of agriculture and forestry by bringing the state’s farming and forestry communities together to share ideas and views on industry needs, while providing a fun and interesting venue for the public to learn about these industries and their impact on life in New Hampshire.
The Exposition includes workshops and speaker programs, a large trade show featuring products, equipment and food, most of which is produced in New Hampshire and New England, a children’s area with hands-on activities, farm animals, and an awards ceremony.
The New Hampshire Farm & Forest Exposition founding sponsors are the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, the NH Division of Forests & Lands and the NH Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food.
