Fresh Rescue Program

The New Hampshire Food Bank, in partnership with supermarkets across the state, collects or enables our partner agencies to recover, fresh meat and poultry that would otherwise be disposed of every week.  These high-quality protein products are collected by or distributed to our partner agencies throughout New Hampshire and are also used in our Culinary Job Training Program to prepare nutritional cuisine for distribution to our agencies.

Every day, the NH Food Bank trucks bring back a variety of frozen foods that need to be sorted into categories. Volunteers involved in this process inspect the food for any signs of contamination or damaged packaging and sort all the good product into boxes that we can distribute to Food Bank agencies. This task requires some bending, lifting, and standing for the duration of the activity.
