The New Hampshire Food Bank reports that the weekly number of families seeking food has only continued to increase throughout the pandemic. At the beginning of the pandemic, around 200-250 families were served per week. Now that number has almost tripled to 500-600 families served per week. The NH Food Bank does not collect data on why families need food but the director of the organization notes that, anecdotally, she thinks the ending of the $600 unemployment insurance supplement July 31 and lack of additional stimulus payments has contributed to the increase. #covid-19 #foodsecurity
