The Connecticut Food Bank will be partnering with Foodshare, their sister organization in north central Connecticut, on the implementation of the state project.
CT Food Bank/Foodshare is the heart of greater Hartfords fight against hunger. We bring together individuals and organizations to create effective solutions to end hunger in all 42 towns of Hartford and Tolland counties.
CT Food Bank/Foodshare does this in three key ways:
Serving as our region’s food bank, reducing the number of people in need by increasing their self-sufficiency and engaging members of the greater community to increase their understanding of these real causes and solutions to hunger. "
Connecticut Food Bank, the largest centralized source of emergency food in Connecticut, serves 650 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and low-income child and adult day programs in six of Connecticut’s eight counties: Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham.
