Eversource Packs 34,560 Mac and Cheese Meals

Eversource packed more than 34,560 mac and cheese meals to support the New Hampshire Food Bank’s efforts to ensure all Granite Staters have enough to eat. More than 130 Eversource employees took part in a day-long community service event on January 31 at Eversource Energy Park featuring an annual “Mac Off” competition, during which teams competed to see how many mac and cheese meals they could pack in an hour. In addition to packing thousands of mac and cheese meals, Eversource donated $17,000 to the NH Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities NH.

“We are tremendously grateful to Eversource for their continued support, as they are providing us with critical resources to support the one in nine New Hampshire residents who do not know where their next meal is coming from – including children, senior citizens and families,” says Eileen Liponis, executive director, New Hampshire Food Bank. “Eversource has been an important partner and we thank them and their employees for helping us get closer to our goal of eliminating hunger in New Hampshire.”

Eversource has taken part in Mac Off competitions for the past three years, packing a total of 91,176 meals and raising a total of $37,000 to support NH Food Bank.

"The NH Food Bank is a leader in strengthening the health and well-being of communities across the state, working to ensure that all Granite Staters—including children who live with food insecurity—have access to the nutritional support they need to grow and thrive,” says Eversource NH President Joe Purington. “Our employees look forward to the annual Mac Off Competition, an exciting way to support the NH Food Bank and give back to our neighbors.”
