Project Details

No one should go hungry in Connecticut. Food-insecure individuals are at risk now, more than ever. That's why we're working with CT Food Bank and Foodshare to help meet the significant increase in demand for their support services amid the loss of drivers, volunteers, and food pantry partners.

Connecticut Food Bank's COVID-19 Efforts

Connecticut Food Bank provides food to hungry adults and children in Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London, and Windham counties. Nearly 270,000 people in our service area are food insecure; more than 79,000 children struggle with hunger.

Foodshare's COVID-19 Efforts

As the regional Feeding America food bank serving Hartford and Tolland counties, Foodshare is the largest anti-hunger organization in the Greater Hartford area. We connect surplus food to our neighbors who struggle with hunger through a network of 280 food pantries, meal programs, and Mobile Foodshare sites.

Foodshare's mobile pantry

Foodshare collects and distributes enough food to make more than 11 million meals each year. One-third of the food we distribute is fresh produce.
