About the Convoy

The Food Industry Convoy of Caring will mark 15 years this September. For the first time ever, Foodshare and Connecticut Food Bank will join together to recognize the statewide food industry, offering thanks to all those who partner with us to fight hunger here at home.

More than 70% of the food we distribute comes directly from our food industry partners. Large-scale donations from companies like Stop & Shop and HPC Foodservice allow us to provide 25 meals for every $10 donated. As a result of our strong partnership with these companies, we have been able to grow with the increasing need in our region, ensuring that all of our hungry neighbors have better access to the resources they need most.
