Hunger is big. Our community is bigger.




Providing food for people who are hungry has been at the heart of who we are for 35 years. With food assistance as our cornerstone, we will continue this work for as long as there are people in need.

But hunger is bigger than food. Hunger is one piece of a patchwork of social issues and it needs solutions that deal with all sides of the causes and consequences.

Collecting and distributing 11.5 million meals worth of food each year through a network of partner agencies gives us a stark understanding of the everyday realities of food insecurity. This perspective is critical to creating a complete picture of the issue and establishing a shared foundation on which hunger organizations, policy makers, and the broader community can build effective solutions to end hunger.

Foodshare is changing what it means to be a food bank. With your support we are building collaborative partnerships and advocating on behalf of those we serve, with one goal in mind—building a stronger and healthier Greater Hartford for us all.
