Connecticut Food Bank Mission

The mission of the Connecticut Food Bank is to provide nutritious food to people in need. 

We do this by supplying food products and resources to our member agencies, as well as through direct food distribution programs and by promoting public awareness about the problem of hunger.

We provide food and resources to a network of community-based food programs, such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, residential programs and day programs serving adults and children in six of Connecticut’s  eight counties: Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham.

The Connecticut Food Bank is the largest centralized source of emergency food in Connecticut and last year distributed enough food to provide more than 21 million meals.
