TFMoran Featured in High Profile Monthly for Donation to NH Food Banks

TFMoran has been featured in the January 2021 issue of High Profile for our contribution to two local food banks during the holidays. TFMoran donated $3,000 in total to local New Hampshire food pantries. Due to the pandemic, the annual company holiday lunch was not held this year. Instead, the estimated cost of both lunches was donated, providing an estimated 6,000 meals to New Hampshire’s people in need. In early December, a $2,000 check was presented to Abby Sprackland, on behalf of NH Food Bank at the TFM office in Bedford. Later that same week, a $1,000 check was presented to Arthur Cousins on behalf of Gather, the seacoast area food pantry at the TFM Portsmouth Division office. Check out the article here.

TFMoran gives $3,000 to help with NH hunger during the Holidays

This year has been a challenging one for many businesses, families, and individuals due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. With statewide social distancing guidelines in place, TFMoran’s annual company holiday lunch for more than sixty employees was unable to take place. Instead, TFMoran’s principals donated what would have been the cost of the holiday lunch to local food banks. It is estimated that this contribution will provide approximately 6,000 meals in total, to New Hampshire people in need.

On December 8th, Abby Sprackland from The New Hampshire Food Bank visited TFMoran’s Bedford office receiving a check from Dylan Cruess, TFMoran’s COO and Principal for $2,000. The New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire, has been working to relieve hunger in the Granite State since 1984. The New Hampshire Food Bank procures and distributes food through more than 400 non-profit registered agencies including food pantries, low-income housing sites, family crisis centers, soup kitchens, senior nutrition centers and emergency shelters. Since the spread of COVID-19 there are approximately 1 in 7 men, women and children in New Hampshire who are food insecure, a projected 55,500 additional people and in total more than 181,090 across the state, a 69% increase.

“We are grateful to TFMoran for their generous donation which will help to provide approximately 4,000 meals this holiday season,” said Eileen Liponis, Executive Director, New Hampshire Food Bank, “The pandemic has brought on many unprecedented challenges for our neighbors this past year. No one should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, especially around the holidays.”

On December 9th, TFMoran’s Portsmouth office staff and its Division Manager and Principal, Corey Colwell, presented a $1,000 check to the seacoast food pantry Gather.  On behalf of Gather,  Seneca Adam Bernard, Associate Executive Director, and Arthur Cousins, Pantry/Warehouse Manager, accepted the donation.

Gather is based in Portsmouth, NH and serves all ages in the Greater NH Seacoast region including Rockingham and Strafford Counties. Gather’s mission is to make the Greater Seacoast a hunger-free community by distribute nourishing food to people who do not have enough to eat; take a leadership role in building an equitable and sustainable regional food system; and galvanize public support for ending hunger. Gather is also the Seacoast’s only preventative health-focused food pantry, meeting the hunger needs of this community through the provision of fresh healthy food.

TFMoran Participates in 2015 Canstruction Food Drive

September is Hunger Action Month. And, this year TFMoran did our part to help the NH Food Bank by participating in the 2015 Canstruction Food Drive. Canstruction is an event in which a structure of an organization’s choosing is built using canned or packaged food items. Once completed, the non-perishable cans are donated to the NH Food Bank for distribution to those in need.  The TFMoran Canstruction Team consisted of Mark Chamberlain, Jennifer Porter, Cassi Beroney, Maryanne Murray, Susan Bartley, and Dylan Cruess.

The judging categories include: Best Meal, Best Use of Labels, Structural Ingenuity, Jurors’ Favorite, Honorable Mention, People’s Choice and Most Food Used.

The judges visited our Bedford Office on October 1st to judge our sculpture and pack their boxes full of much needed food. The multi-color themed “TFM” logo consisted of 23 rows across by 6 rows high by 3 rows deep, totally 414 cans! And, at the end of the rainbow was a macaroni & cheese pot of gold. There was a wide variety of nutritious food, including green and wax beans, leaf spinach, mixed vegetables, corn, carrots, stewed tomatoes, chick peas, kidney beans, pea beans, chili beans, beets and peas. Dylan Cruess and Maryanne Murray did most of the shopping at the Bedford Market Basket, making several trips for colors, sizes, content and quantity.

TFMoran and all our staff are proud to be part of the local community.  We are already looking forward to the 2016 Canstruction competition!
