The mission of Connecticut Food Bank is to provide nutritious food to people in need.
Founded in 1982, Connecticut Food Bank is a member of Feeding America’s nationwide network of food banks. We partner with food retailers, growers, financial donors, and volunteers to source food and distribute it through a network of 500 food access points that include community-based pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and more, as well as our Mobile Pantries, Dairy Express, and Senior Supplemental Food Program. We serve Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London, and Windham counties, home to 71% of the state’s population and to 65% of the state’s food insecure. Last year we distributed enough food to prepare more than 23.9 million meals.
