About HM

As COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc in the lives of children, seniors, veterans, and families in our area, Connecticut Food Bank remains committed to providing nutritious food to people in need.

Nutritious food is critical to maintaining good health; so, in many ways, it is more important now than ever before to reach our neighbors in need:

  • Seniors, who are especially vulnerable to the virus
  • People who have lost work because of decreased consumer activity due to the virus
  • Children in low-income households who are losing access to daily nutrition due to school closures
  • Families living in food deserts, and those who do not have the means to stock up on supplies and healthy foods

In ever increasing numbers, people are turning to Connecticut Food Bank and its network of 500 partners and programs across the six counties served.

And in challenging times like this, Connecticut Food Bank turns to the community for support to continue its critical work. 

Friends, as we seek what brings us comfort during these trying times, PLEASE consider providing for those who are struggling to figure out how they will survive the COVID-19 devastation because of social isolation and distancing.
