About Connecticut Food Bank / Foodshare:

Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare is the food bank of Connecticut and a member of the national Feeding America network. We provide nearly 40 million meals each year through a network of more than 700 community-based hunger relief programs, including food pantries, community kitchens, and emergency shelters; while also working on long-term solutions. More than 8,000 volunteers help power the work of the food bank. Last year, they gave more than 62,000 hours of service.

In Connecticut, food insecurity was estimated to increase by an alarming 28% in 2020 because of the pandemic, for a total of 545,000 people (1 in 7 people), including 164,000 children (1 in 4 children), across Connecticut who are at risk of hunger.
