The ALA Nutmeg Chapter is proud to partner with the Connecticut Food Bank as part of its Community Connection endeavor for 2020. Your donations will help to provide much needed food to those in need in our local community.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our communities in many different ways, including an increased demand on the food supply chain and the charitable food assistance network.
Food insecurity rates in our communities have increased by as much as 44% from nearly 270,000 people in our area before COVID to nearly 390,000 individuals of all ages who are at risk of hunger today.
Connecticut Food Bank and their network of member agencies and programs have worked tirelessly to distribute food to people in need since the COVID-19 pandemic first emerged in our communities in mid-March.
The ALA Nutmeg Chapter would appreciate 100% participation by Chapter Members and Business Partners for this worthy fundraising effort.
