We are so excited to share that The Boscawen Congregational Church " Hilda's" Food Pantry has been selected to be a part of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which is designed to make it easy for customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment.
For the month of April, each time a $2.50 reusable Fight Hunger Bag is purchased at the Hannaford located at Fort Eddy Rd. Concord, $1 will be donated to the Boscawen Congregational Church Food Pantry. This is a great way to raise awareness, support the environment and fundraise for our cause.
Let’s get started! We can begin by spreading the news to our friends and family. Call, send emails, and post on social media. The more people who learn about the program and purchase the Fight Hunger Bag during the month of April, the more money we will

CONCORD— At NHTI-Concord’s Community College (NHTI) approximately one in five students take an online class. When it became apparent that all of our learning would have to move completely online due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) faculty, support staff and administration became laser focused on how to move the rest of our students online. With less than two weeks’ notice, lots of communication, a steep learning curve for some, and a desire to see our students continue to succeed, NHTI has risen to the challenge and provided continued support academically for our students online.

The Boscawen Congregational Church's food pantry has had a very busy winter and now along with everyone else we can't wait for Spring! As of the end of February we have 94 clients. 31 of which are children under 18, and 29 elderly. They are our neighbors, friends, and family. The food pantry and clothes closet are open Monday 10am-12pm, Wednesday 3pm-6pm and Saturday 10am-12pm. Unfortunately we lost our biggest donor in December. We rely solely on monetary donations to buy the food that our clients need. It is very true that for every dollar we receive we are able to stretch it to buy enough for 2 meals. If you would like to help us with a monetary donation please make your check Payable to Boscawen Congregational Church, Food Pantry, 12 High St., Boscawen, NH 03303
