PEMBROKE, N.H. -- AG New England and Shurfine Foods have joined together for an initiative to benefit the food pantry run by the Concord, N.H.-based Friends of Forgotten Children, which helps displaced families with shelter, food, and clothing.
"Our employees have been donating nonperishable food items from home, as well as making donations to buy Shurfine products," said AG New England customer service manager Cindy Smith in a statement. "The donations have been matched by Shurfine and AG New England. This effort has been so popular, we were asked to extend the deadline."

for the Friends of Forgotten Children's food pantry."
