Thank you for your interest in volunteering at this year's Taste of the Nation Manchester.

Everyone has a strength to share. We believe that big problems can be solved when we all share our strengths. There are many volunteer opportunities throughout the day of the event. Each volunteer will have scheduled time to enjoy the event.

Please contact if you're interested in volunteering at this year's event! 

Nearly 17 million children face hunger in America. Most families that live below the poverty line in America are working families, yet their regular income is not sufficient to cover the cost of housing, medical care, child care, transportation, clothing and food. Employment is simply not enough to safeguard these families against hunger and poverty.

Local Beneficiaries:

New Hampshire Food Bank: In 2014, the NH Food Bank distributed over 11 million pounds of non-perishable items, fresh produce, and meats to more than 400 non-profit food agencies in all corners of NH.

NH Kids Count formerly NH Child Alliance: Promotes policies and practices that enable children in New Hampshire to lead healthy and productive lives.

New Hampshire Farm to School: Connects New Hampshire farms and schools by integrating agricultural programs, school food procurement and school curriculum.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Manchester: Reaches out to youth, especially those who need it most, inspiring them to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring individuals.
