Foodshare

Foodshare is the regional food bank and distributes more than 11 tons of food per day to 350 local programs that feed hungry people in Hartford and Tolland Counties. Foodshare provides food to food pantries, community kitchens, shelters, and other social service organizations in every town in Greater Hartford. These programs serve children, families, and seniors and provide over a quarter of a million meals each month! With all Foodshare has accomplished, it is still not enough! The 8.3 million pounds of food distributed last year works out to only 83 pounds per hungry person per year – less than two pounds of food per person per week. We have to keep up the effort to do more! http://www.foodshare.org/main.cfm
