Bring your canned goods to Redhook Brewery (Portsmouth NH) for special beer price
3rd Annual Food Drive at Redhook January 11 â€“ February 11 2010.
PORTSMOUTH, NH, January 4, 2010 — On January 11, Redhook Ale Brewery will initiate its 3rd Annual Food Drive at the Cataqua Pub in the brewery. Redhook will be collecting non-perishable foodstuffs for local food pantries through February 11, 2010.
Three years ago, the brewery began collecting food in order to help stock shelves before the holidays. While demand continues year-round, donations seem to dip after the holidays, so this year, they have decided to host the food drive post-holidays.
â€œThe local community is extremely generous with their help towards Seacoast area food pantries, especially around the holiday season. In planning this yearâ€™s food drive, we thought that helping fill the shelves after the holidays would be the best way we could help in our own backyard and continue the holiday spirit,â€ said Amanda Telford, General Manager of the brewery. â€œOur customers have responded to our call for non-perishable food items so well in the past, weâ€™re looking forward to seeing what they come through with this year.â€
Redhook invites customers to bring in at least 2 non-perishable food items when they visit the pub. In thanks, Redhook will provide participants with special pricing on their beverage of choice. In past years, the month-long drive has contributed over 350 pounds to Seacoast area food pantries and Redhook hopes to surpass that weight in 2010.
