Food Insecurity

Delivering Meals to Those Who Need Them

Back to projects

Project Details

No one in Connecticut should have to worry about their next meal. Since 2011, Food Rescue has worked to get food into the hands of those that need it most through a network of 200+ social service agency partners. As the food insecurity crisis continues to grow, Food Rescue has established a COVID-19 meal preparation and delivery system to get meals to the most vulnerable of the food insecure population.

Social and Equity Impact of 4-CT Grant:

29% of social service agencies served by Food Rescue do not receive food through either Foodshare or Food Bank. As of June 26, Food Rescue has:

●      distributed 5,100 meals overall

●      supplied food to 27 food providers

●      supplied food to 43 social service providers

Geographic distribution of meal provision: Fairfield County (59%), West Hartford (16%), New Haven (17%), Northwest CT (8%).
