Connecticut Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, a national network of food banks that works to feed people in need.
Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Its mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.
Each year, the Feeding America network provides food to more than 37 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States, including 14 million children and nearly 3 million seniors.
The national network of more than 200 food banks serves all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, securing and distributing more than 2.5 billion pounds of food and grocery products annually. Those member food banks support approximately 61,000 local charitable agencies and 70,000 programs, which provide food directly to individuals and families in need.
We rely on Feeding America for advocacy, food and fund donations. More importantly, Feeding America, at the national level, brings together all the state and local food banks so that we can have one collective voice in the fight against hunger.
