Volunteer Day at Foodshare
Kristen, Joe, Lisa, Bob, and Mike spent the morning of Friday, December 14th at Foodshare in Hartford inspecting and sorting produce for distribution to families struggling with food insecurity in Hartford and Tolland counties.
Families struggle with food insecurity in every town and city in Greater Hartford. Over 40% of those families earn too much to qualify for government-funded nutritional assistance. Many of our neighbors are having to choose between paying for utility bills or prescription medicines and buying food.
Foodshare of Greater Hartford serves the 42 towns and cities in Hartford and Tolland Counties by collecting surplus food, inspecting the food for health and safety, and distributing it to local food pantries, meal programs and Mobile Foodshare sites.
