Help feed the hungry & skate for free!
The NH Food Bank food drive Strawbery Banke Museum announced when the skating rink opened in November continues. And now that the holiday giving season is over, the need to help feed families in the Greater Seacoast community is bigger than ever. Assistance is rewarded in several ways. The donation of a bag of non-perishable food supports some of the 42,170 children under 18 in New Hampshire who are food insecure and are served by the 15 nonprofits on the Seacoast affiliated with the NH Food Bank.
- Donate a bag of healthy food and receive a pass for free admission to Strawbery Banke Museum ($20 value) during the May-October season.
- Bring a bag of food on a Friday in January at lunchtime and skate for free from 12 noon to 1 pm.
- Skate on Friday and stay for lunch and enjoy a 10% discount at the rinkside Figtree Kitchen Cafe! The cafe is open on Fridays, 11 am to 8 pm. Skate rentals are available, $5 per pair.
