Details: Thirty years of food banking has made Foodshare a leader in anti-hunger work here in Greater Hartford. With leadership comes responsibility – to our community partners and people who depend on our efforts to help them through their personal crisis. In the early days we all thought this work would be temporary – a stop-gap until we found a solution. Thirty years later we are providing almost two-hundred times as much food to ten times as many organizations, with no end in sight. If we are to build a hunger-free community, we must turn our attention to solutions that will decrease the need, and set a foundation to help families become independent. Foodshare’s mission is to engage the greater Hartford community for the purpose of distributing food and increasing self-sufficiency. By working closely with other local partners – individuals, businesses, schools, faith groups and government agencies – Foodshare seeks to increase awareness of hunger within our communities. It is important to understand why hunger exists and how we can help bring about change.
