BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Food Bank is renewing a campaign to bring awareness about more than 140,000 residents in the state who have problems putting food on their tables.

It’s called the “Nothing” campaign.

Cans of “Nothing” are being sold at retailers across the state for $5, and can then be filled and returned with donations.

The Food Bank says the cans are sold empty to represent the reality that thousands of the state’s residents experience daily.

Gov. Maggie Hassan is helping to kick off the campaign with Citizens Bank at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Harvest Market in Bedford. Citizens Bank is planning to match up to $25,000 in donations.

The campaign lasts through mid-April.
