Meet our Advocacy Hunger Action Hero

Keith Fontaine of Norwich is Connecticut Food Bank’s 2013 Advocacy Hunger Action Hero.

Keith wants all to know that there a clear connection between food insecurity and overall health.  In his role as Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at The William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, he is an advocate for community health education and strong proponent of increasing access to fresh, healthy food for low-income men, women and children. 

 A leader in community solutions to fight hunger, Keith is a founder of the New London Food Policy Council and is Chairman of the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut which is the parent organization for the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center in New London.  

 Keith was recognized for his efforts Sunday at the 2013 Hunger Action Heroes Awards ceremony at our East Haven warehouse. We thank him and all our heroes for the work they do to help Connecticut Food Bank in its mission to provide nutritious food to people in need.
