A spokeswoman for Hassan says the lobster meat, bisque and spreads were donated Tuesday to the Friendly Kitchen in Concord. Manager Jennifer Lombardo told the Concord Monitor that "we definitely will serve it to some of our guests."
Maine Gov. Paul LePage shipped lobster products Monday to the other 49 governors to promote Maine lobster.
LePage says the shipments allow friends and colleagues across the country a chance to experience "the flavor of Maine." He says the lobster industry is vital to Maine's economy, generating nearly $1 billion last year.
