End 68 Hours of Hunger

End 68 Hours of Hunger is non-profit organization with the mission to confront the 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between school lunch on Friday and school breakfast on Monday morning. In order to combat those hours of hunger, the Portsmouth program provides a bag of nutritious, non-perishable food to feed children who have been identified as being “in-need” by the school nurses. Bags are filled by volunteers on Thursday evening and delivered to schools on Friday morning for distribution. The Portsmouth program, which was started as a pilot program during the 2009-2010 school year, has grown from providing 10 bags per week to 110 bags per week. Food is now provided at all 3 elementary schools, the middle school, the high school and The Bob Lister Academy.
