Grant awarded to LRFP

We are extremely grateful for the grant we recently received from the Bishop’s Charitable Assistance Fund.  This grant will help support our mission of helping ease food insecurity in the lakes region of NH, in particular with our voucher program.  This program supports over 400 families each month allowing them to shop at area grocery stores for fresh meats and produce.

Lakes Region Food Pantry received a grant from the Bishop’s Charitable Assistance Fund for its voucher program.  The Bishop’s Charitable Assistance Fund makes grants to tax-exempt organizations without regard to religious affiliation for projects that help people in New Hampshire meet their basic needs.  The Fund is operated by volunteer lay men and women who serve as Directors and who make recommendations to the Bishop of Manchester for grants to any organization in New Hampshire whose mission is consistent with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.  The Fund raises money through solicitation of individuals, businesses, and philanthropic organizations.
