Foodshare maximize access to nutritious food and resources that support food security for Greater Hartford, CT and beyond.
Foodshare is a Connecticut based company which provides food for families in need, no questions asked. In addition to doing mobile Foodshare distributions throughout the greater Hartford area, they also make and pack nutritious, non-perishable meals for distribution to those in greatest need in the US and abroad. They use local volunteers (in CT, MA, and RI) to keep costs low, and they provide so much help every day.
In my town, they distribute fresh produce and premade non-perishable meals every other week. They are currently providing a lot of food to folks laid off or furloughed due to Coronavirus-related shut downs. Please consider helping this amazing charity to feed healthcare workers, restaurant workers, and service industry families!
