Help UNH Extension map food-access resources and needs across New Hampshire during COVID-19
Are you providing food for those in need? Is your food pantry or kitchen in need of donations? If so, please fill out the NH Food-Access Map Survey to connect communities to food-access resources and needs around our state.
> What is the NH Food Access Map?
COVID-19 has both increased the need for food resources, and created an environment in which they are more difficult to obtain. In response, countless food-access sites around our state have stepped up to meet the needs in their communities. Many organizations have altered schedules and site locations during this time.
UNH Cooperative Extension seeks to better connect communities to up-to-date food resources in an upcoming “Food Access Map”. This map is targeted to those in need of resources, as well as those looking to support sites with donations and volunteerism. Your support is needed to successfully bring this resource to our state.
Collectively, we can bring all of these initiatives to one place. We hope a resource like this can help people in our communities better navigate what's available to them, and support one another in this time of need.
> How can I help?
Please fill out the NH Food-Access Map Survey with information on your food-access site, and/or the volunteering and monetary gaps your sites may be experiencing. Your survey submission will create a “dot” on the NH Food-Access Map, which will be opened to the public by March 30, 2020. Note: The survey will be still be open afrer the map becomes live, so please feel free to add your sites after this date.
