LONDONDERRY, N.H. — The New Hampshire Food Bank has started its annual “Nothing Campaign,” an initiative aimed at raising awareness and funds in an effort to end hunger.

People can buy the cans of “nothing” for $5 each at participating supermarkets. Each can bought provides 10 meals and can be returned with donations. Over the past five years, the campaign has raised nearly $564,000, which has provided more than 1.12 million meals.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu and Citizens Bank President Joe Carelli bought the first cans on Friday at a supermarket in Londonderry.

The food bank says it distributed about 14 million pounds of food last year.
