Connecticut Food Bank Thanksgiving for All

 This year, we collected 25,512 turkeys and more than 412,700 pounds of trimmings. With everyone’s help, we were able to provide 599,055 meals for people in need of food assistance.

We appreciate the individuals, families, civic groups, schools, religious organizations and companies who helped make Connecticut Food Bank’s 2013 “Thanksgiving for All” campaign a success.

Connecticut Food Bank’s Thanksgiving for All campaign is a series of events and food drives hosted and sponsored by local civic and religious organizations, charitable foundations, businesses, media and supermarkets which help Connecticut Food Bank make Thanksgiving special for thousands of our neighbors in danger of going without a holiday meal.

We can’t justify people living with hunger. We must do all we can to change this. And as we will learn this Thanksgiving, we have the ability and fortitude to feed thousands of individuals who were in danger of going without a holiday meal. Let’s carry that resolve beyond Thanksgiving and into the days and months that follow.
