New Hampshire Public Radio Intern Tina Forbes Reports:
Did you vote on your favorite local restaurant this year? Winners of the New Hampshire Magazine’s ‘Best of New Hampshire’ contest will be gathering on Thursday night to celebrate and share some contest-winning morsels at the Verizon Center in Manchester. The public may attend.
All proceeds from the event benefit the New Hampshire Food Bank, which will also participate in the festivities, raffling off donated prizes and gift cards. The New Hampshire Food Bank is the only food bank in the state, serving over 127,000 individuals in New Hampshire — 35 percent of whom are under 18 years old.
Rick Broussard, editor of New Hampshire Magazine explained that the event has two goals.
One is to draw the whole state together like a big block party to celebrate food and culture and to provide people with some enlightenment about the great restaurants and talent that exist in our cities and small towns. The second goal is to raise funds and awareness for the important work of the NH Food Bank.
