Serving Hartford and Tolland Counties, Foodshare provides to over 40 towns.  Instead of just feeding the hungry, President and CEO, Gloria McAdam and the rest of her team want to actually end hunger in our state.  In fact, their mission is to “work to end hunger as a part of the overall community effort to alleviate poverty in greater Hartford”.
To fulfill their mission, Foodshare creates solutions in three ways: serves as the region’s food bank (by distributing 16 tons of food each day), reducing the number of people in need (by increasing their self-sufficiency) , and engaging members of the community (so they can understand the causes and solutions needed).
Foodshare hosts a long list of programs, including a rapid delivery program, a role play and discussion activity, and a “kids’ café”.  In 2009, Foodshare distributed 12 million pounds of food to local partner agencies.  In addition, Foodshare accepts food donations Monday through Friday in Hartford and Bloomfield.  And yes, they do accept fresh produce and refrigerated food!  Their website has an extensive list of resources, including information on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
           Please visit their website to find out how you can get involved  by either donating, volunteering or becoming an advocate.  It can be found here.
